Festivals are stories we tell about ourselves. When you attend a festival in Oklahoma, though your fingers might be sticky with powdered sugar from a shared funnel cake, you are taking part in an important storytelling endeavor.

Festivals are stories we tell about ourselves. When you attend a festival in Oklahoma, though your fingers might be sticky with powdered sugar from a shared funnel cake, and you might be wearing a viking helmet besides, you are taking part in an important storytelling endeavor.

We build our festivals on that one thing we’re known for, the tagline on the signs we hammer into the ground alongside the roads that lead into town: The way we remember the times, places, foods, songs, and dances of our ancestors. The strawberry-sweet, rich soil under our feet, the same stuff our grandparents tilled with a plow. Our passion for sports, or our traditions (and new interests) in music. Even the time a big-talkin’ man came to town, sold us a circus, and then skipped town.

From King Henry VIII to endless spaghetti, here are our top picks for festivals on the calendar for May in Oklahoma.
