— Oklahoma has plenty to offer when it comes to locally made food and beverages, and both will be showcased at the Oklahoma Wine, Beer and Food Festival in Midwest City.

The event is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 19 at the Reed Conference Center at the Sheraton Midwest City, 5750 Will Rogers Road near Interstate 40 and Sooner Road.

Wine from eight Oklahoma wineries and beer from six Oklahoma breweries will be available. Those who don't drink will find plenty of Oklahoma-made food to enjoy.

There will be a car show in the Reed Center parking lot, a grilled cheese cook-off and live music. There also will be a children's play area, Wine and Palette art class and a cooking demonstration from Sheraton Hotel executive chef Chad Striplin.

Made in Oklahoma products have become increasingly popular in recent years. They are found at most grocery stores throughout the state.

Organizers Melanie Voice and Susan MacQuarrie of the Midwest City Convention and Visitors Bureau hope to tap into that.
