The oppressive heat is waning, so outdoor community celebrations are an ideal pick for this month.

In Pryor, Rocklahoma comes to town Sept. 3-5. This epic, three-day rock extravaganza welcomes more than 70 acts from around the country.

In Tulsa, the Oklahoma Tribal Celebration runs Sept. 25 at Gathering Place. A gathering of Oklahoma’s 39 tribes, culture and entertainment mix for an exciting day of education.

In Mustang, the Old Volks Show at Mustang Wildhorse Park highlights beautifully restored, quirky and eye-catching Volkswagens from creative Oklahomans. 

Gallop over to Lazy E Arena in Guthrie to experience the Oklahoma Wildlife Expo, Oklahoma’s largest indoor and outdoor recreation event with a variety of animals to see and enjoy. 

And it’s not September in Oklahoma without the fair. In OKC, the fun runs Sept. 16 to 26 at State Fair Park, then comes down to Tulsa’s Expo Square Sept. 10 to Oct. 10. Delicious eats, rides, prizes, music – what more could you want?
