Oklahoma History Center to Host 2022 Oklahoma Farm-to-Table Festival
OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma History Center (OHC) will hold the 2022 Oklahoma Farm-to-Table Festival on March 19, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This free, community-wide fair highlights historic and modern farm life, with the purpose of demonstrating how food and household items travel from their sources to our homes. Families will experience perspectives from colonial America to the modern day, with hands-on activities for visitors of all ages. Admission is free to the public, and the event will be held predominately outdoors on the OHC grounds. The OHC is located at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive in Oklahoma City.
The festival will offer a multitude of educational opportunities and experiences, including cooking and nutrition demonstrations, livestock, construction methods, various crafts and story time. In addition, there will be several Made-in-Oklahoma vendors present that will illustrate how their products are created and distributed. A number of these contributors will offer their products for individual or group sales. Several food trucks will be on-site to offer a wide variety of items for lunch at the festival. Entertainment will be offered on the main stage for much of the festival. Mallory Eagle, a well-known native Oklahoman performer and Nashville recording artist, will perform traditional and original music from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The Bottom of the Barrel Band will close out the day performing its high-energy folk music from 12:30 to 2 p.m.
The 2022 Oklahoma Farm-to-Table Festival is an education-focused event partially sponsored by Inasmuch Foundation and Oklahoma Humanities. For more information, please call 405-522-0765 or visit www.okhistory.org/historycenter.
