In Bixby, OK, the biggest event of the summer is the annual GREEN CORN FESTIVAL. Held in June in downtown Bixby, it is a true “community celebration” dating back to the area’s agricultural heritage.
The Festival is designed as good, old fashioned, family-oriented fun. Starting at 6 p.m. Thursday night it features live music, arts and crafts, food and a carnival. A talent show, to highlight area youth, is held on Friday at the Bixby Community Center. The Green Corn parade entertains the crowds Saturday morning before a day of great games and contests for the young and young at heart.
Charley Young Park’s gazebo stage in downtown Bixby (1 block south and east of 151st and Memorial Dr.) is the site of on-going live music throughout the festival. The park is surrounded by food and craft booths and is the site of most of the festival’s games and contests. Just a hop and skip to the north is the carnival … can’t miss the ferris wheel. Cool off during the heat of the day Saturday afternoon by joining in a few games of Bingo at the Bixby Community Center.
