Thursday, Sept. 5-Saturday, Sept. 7
Claremore gets shaking in down home soul and spice with its annual Bluegrass & Chili Festival, Thursday, Sept. 5-Saturday, Sept. 7 at the town’s Expo Center, 400 S. Veterans Parkway. Headlining bluegrass acts such as Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and Rhonda Vincent & the Rage take the stage with other bands throughout a weekend that includes a festival market, arts and crafts show, car show, dance exhibitions, the “kiddie korral” activity tent and the Mid-American Regional Chili Cook-off. That means you need to be prepared with cash for your taster kits, a big bottle of water and appetite for great home cooking. Pack you lawn chairs, but leave the cooler at home. Admission is free, but parking is $10 per carload each day. Go to www.claremore.org for all the times and details.
