The Talihina Fall Foliage Festival has been awarded an Oklahoma Arts Council Grant in the amount of $2500.00. These funds make it possible to have the Art Show and the live entertainment during the festival.
Plans for this year’s festival include; Arts & Crafts, Food Booths, Car Show, Quilt Show, Native American Hoop Dancer Lyndon Alec, Whiskey River Road Band, The Marlow Gunfighters, Wild Bill Hickok Impersonator Michael Griffith, Demonstrations on making bath products with Janet Ingle, and Pony Rides.
Many committee members are needed in order to make this year’s festival one to remember. The Fall Foliage Festival is Saturday October 28, 2017; it will be at the Talihina School Ag Building, located at 803 Railroad Street, just 2 blocks off Hwy 271.
This festival is very important to the economy of the Talihina area. It brings visitors from all over the USA. The fall festival is scheduled for the time of year when visitors come to enjoy the fall foliage along the Talimena Scenic Drive. Combining the two events give those visitors more of an incentive to visit the area.
We would love to have you as part of our group to promote the area and help insure we have a great festival.
