Tulsa is a city that has lots to do in any season and the fall is no exception. You can enjoy the state fair, Oktoberfest and a whole lot more. If you want to know all the fun things to do in Tulsa in the fall these events will get you started.
The Tulsa State Fair is the kickoff event for the fall season. Beginning in late September and running into early October this 11-day event is an old-fashioned agricultural fair with lots to do for the entire family. The Oklahoma and Muscogee Stages offers live entertainment, there are special children’s events and attractions, lots of rides and exhibits and so much more.
The Just for Kids Adventure offers a schedule of things for kids to do at the Creative Stations, the Superplay Activity Center and Tulsa’s largest sandbox. Some of the other favorites are the Picking and Fiddling Championship and the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show. Come to the Tulsa State Fair to see the animals, the horse show, the oversized fruits and vegetables and the baked goods. It is all great fun.
Oktoberfest will come to Tulsa for the 39th time in 2017. It happens late in the month of October, the 19-22 in 2017 from Thursday through Sunday and celebrates all things German. It has been named one of the 10 Best Oktoberfests in North America by USA Today. The annual event features food, drink, music, and lots of German culture. This is the place to try schnitzel, soft German pretzels and lots of other German foods.
Plenty of typical festival type foods such as funnel cakes and kettle corn will also be offered. Come to enjoy the German Music and dancing and much more for the entire family. Arts and crafts vendors are available as well selling a variety of items. Of course, being a German festival, beer will play an important part in the celebration.
In addition to all the special events that happen in the fall, there are all the usual things that are enjoyable to do. With the weather getting cool it is a perfect time to visit one of the many parks around the city to enjoy the outdoors. Miles of hiking trails await and the River Parks offer a great place to walk or bike the trails that go along the river.
If you want to head out of the city a short drive will bring you to orchards and farms where you can pick your own apples and pumpkins and get lost in a corn maze.
Fall is a great time to enjoy all the outdoor activities that Tulsa is so well known for and as the fall turns into winter, there will be all the Christmas events to look forward to.
