The Oklahoma History Center (OHC) is pleased to invite the public to attend the 2021 Folklife Festival on Saturday, October 16, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This event is free, open to the public, and will offer a wide range of entertainment, crafts, exhibitions, and food. The festival will be held predominantly outdoors on the OHC campus located at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive in Oklahoma City.
This community-wide event will celebrate and recognize what the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress has called “the everyday and intimate creativity that all of us share and pass on to the next generation.” The “creativity” mentioned will come in the form of dancing, singing, crafts, food, and much more. Some excellent examples of the diverse offerings at the festival are the various dance troupes demonstrating their talents to all attendees. Included in these demonstrations will be Mexican, Venezuelan, and South and Southeast Asian dance performers. A variety of food vendors, musical performers, and educational representatives will be present to offer their time and talents. There will also be a number of craft opportunities for attendees of all ages. In addition, the Oklahoma Pork Council will be giving away a roaster/cooker in a public drawing. For additional information, please call 405-522-0765.
The 2021 Folklife Festival is sponsored in part by Oklahoma Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
