Festivals of Guthrie

Thursday, Friday & Saturday, October 3, 4, 5, 2019!

Oklahoma’s International Bluegrass Festival (we locals just refer to it as "Bluegrass") has been bringing great bluegrass, traditional, western swing, Americana & other music to Guthrie since 1996.  Set in Cottonwood Flats where there’s plenty of room for camping and lots of jam sessions, the first full weekend of each October brings superb entertainers from the US and around the world to Guthrie for a weekend of great music. In addition to camping, jamming, and all the great stage performances, festival-goers can enjoy workshops, chow down at the food trucks, shop for a new instrument, event shirt, or hat in the merchandise tent, or bid for a fine instrument at the auction, where all proceeds go to youth scholarships.

November 30, December 7 & 14, 2019

For over twenty years, visiting Guthrie is the most extraordinary way to enjoy the Christmas season. Our Territorial Christmas Celebrations are at the heart of Oklahoma's traditional expression of the holidays, with all of the flavor of the Territorial period and all of the excitement of the Twenty-First Century.

We invite you and your family to come experience the Christmas season in Guthrie, OK—where historic authenticity meets holiday festivity! 

April 16-20, 2019

Join us as we celebrate the historic birth of Oklahoma that began with a cannon shot at noon on April 22, 1889. This year marks the official 90th Annual Oklahoma '89er Celebration in Guthrie, Oklahoma. The Celebration includes a fun, family carnival, Chuck Wagon Feed & Auction, '89er Queen Competition, food and craft vendors,  and the largest and oldest parade in the State of Oklahoma.        

This monthly concert series features some of the best musicians Oklahoma has to offer. Bring your lawnchair, and come early to grab a bite to eat and spend some time with friends. Music starts around 7 p.m., and food trucks a couple hours before. Make it a perfect evening by booking a room at one of our downtown bed & breakfasts or inns!
