The age-old art of sorghum-making is celebrated each fall in Wewoka at the community’s annual Sorghum Festival. The Festival was founded in 1976 as a joint effort of the Wewoka Rotary Club and Seminole Nation Museum. In its 44th year, the Sorghum Festival theme, "How Sweet It Is," reflects both the taste of the locally grown and processed Sorghum as well as the unique nature of this area of Oklahoma and its people.
Historic re-enactors, Native American foods, children’s crafts, live music and entertainment, as well as pioneer and Native American living demonstrations are to be found on the Seminole Nation Museum grounds – the heart of the Festival. Antique farm implements, a tractor show and other agricultural implements are also on display.
Visitors can meet guest artists and craftsmen, watch the making of the sorghum or just sit back and enjoy a hot Indian Fry Bread topped with sweet sorghum – a Festival favorite!
Admission to the family-friendly festival is free!
