Need a turkey leg? Go to Broken Bow.
BROKEN BOW –The Oklahoma Forest Heritage Center is hosting one of Oklahoma’s most popular autumn events this weekend. The 18th Annual Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show brings over 17,000 visitors to southeastern Oklahoma each year, just in time for the beautiful fall colors on November 11th, 12th and 13th.
The festival is a showcase for turn-of-the-century arts and crafts. This year almost 70 exhibitors and vendors will feature crafts and skills like candle making, woodturning, lye soap making, knife making and quilting. Herbalists will share their knowledge, instrument makers will exhibit their work and quilters will show their best.
New this year will be a fun crosscut saw set up by Oklahoma Forestry Services allowing visitors to try their hand at this old-time skill! The outdoor courtyard of the Forest Heritage Center is a haven for the children. Storytellers spin their yarns; a petting zoo offers up-close and personal encounters with furry critters. The children’s activity area will offer kids the opportunity to create a puppet show with their imagination and their own handmade paper puppets.
The twang of banjos, the wail of the fiddles and the ring of the dulcimer strings will be heard as four of the country’s best folk musicians will be featured on an outdoor stage throughout the three-day festival. Visitors can also participate in Mountain Dulcimer workshops offered each day by instructors Keith and Darlene Vanderbosch.
