Oklahoma History Center to Host 2023 Oklahoma Farm-to-Table Festival
OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma History Center (OHC) will hold the 2023 Oklahoma Farm-to-Table Festival on Saturday, March 18, from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. This free, community-wide fair highlights historic and modern farm life to demonstrate 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 primarily outdoors on the OHC grounds. The OHC is located at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Dr. in Oklahoma City.
The festival will offer many educational opportunities and experiences, including chuckwagon cooking and nutrition demonstrations, livestock, a petting zoo, various crafts and story time. In addition, several “Made in Oklahoma” vendors will be in attendance to illustrate how their products are created and distributed. A number of these contributors will offer their products for individual or group sales. Musical entertainment will be on the main stage for much of the festival by notable local artists.
The 2023 Oklahoma Farm-to-Table Festival is an education-focused event partially sponsored by Inasmuch Foundation. For more information, please call 405-522-0765 or visit www.okhistory.org/historycenter.
