The first priority of the Oklahoma Historical Society is the health and safety of our patrons, volunteers, and staff. We stand with our fellow Oklahomans in the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We have closed our sites and affiliates to the public through April 30.
In an effort to minimize gatherings, all OHS-sponsored events are canceled or postponed through May 2, and some events have been canceled beyond that date. We are posting all changes on our events calendar to keep you updated as the situation develops.

Oklahoma Farm-to-Table Family Festival *Postponed*
This event has been postponed.
The Oklahoma History Center is pleased to announce its second annual Oklahoma Farm-to-Table Family Festival to be held Saturday, March 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors will experience the rich agricultural heritage of America from colonial times to the modern day, with hands-on activities and freshly cooked food for all. This family-friendly event is free and open to the public!
There will be more than 20 exhibitors and vendors on-site to engage visitors and provide free, hands-on activities. Samples of healthy snacks, Dutch oven cooking, chuck wagon cooking, and wholesome products from a local farmer’s market will be offered. Livestock such as milk cows, oxen, and ducks will be roaming the grounds. Also present will be the legendary draft horses from the Pawnee Bill Ranch and Museum, an Oklahoma Historical Society historic site.
A number of craft activities and instructional presentations also will be part of this festival. The Tower Gardeners will present a compact aeroponic gardening system that shortens the distance from farm to table to just a few steps. Craftsman Preston Ware will offer a woodworking demonstration using a lathe. In addition, the Oklahoma Pork Council has donated a smoker to be given away in a public drawing. While enjoying the festival, attendees are encouraged to visit all of the museum galleries inside the Oklahoma History Center.
