Birthday Bash

May 8, 2021, 9 a.m.5 p.m.

Event Navigation

Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center will celebrate the 43rd anniversary of the opening of Spiro Mounds on Saturday, May 8, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with its annual Birthday Bash. The site will celebrate its 43rd year of increasing awareness of Oklahoma archaeology with birthday cake and free admission all day, although donations will be gratefully accepted.

There also will be a history of the Spiro Mounds site at 2 p.m. presented by site manager and archaeologist Dennis Peterson. Regular exhibits will be available throughout the day as well. Due to continuing COVID-19 restrictions, masks must be worn inside the building, and we are limited to 10 people in the building at any time. We ask everyone to be patient during this difficult time.

Also due to continuing COVID-19 restrictions, Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center has canceled its 16th annual Archaeology Day, which is normally held in conjunction with the Birthday Bash. Mark your calendars now for October 16, when we hope to gather again with an event to celebrate Oklahoma Archaeology Month.

If you would like more information about the Birthday Bash or how you can help, please contact Dennis Peterson at 918-962-2062 or spiro@okhistory.org. The center is located three miles east of Spiro on Highway 9/271 and four miles north on Lock and Dam Road.
