Seminole Sorghum Festival

oklahoma_wewoka_sorghumThe age-old art of sorghum making is celebrated each fall at the annual Sorghum Festival, held October 24, 2015, at the Seminole Nation Museum, 524 South Wewoka Avenue, Wewoka, Oklahoma — and most of downtown Wewoka, running from the Wewoka Switch Depot seven blocks to the museum.

Made by boiling the liquid squeezed from sorghum cane, the thick, amber-colored sweetener was once a staple in pioneer homes on the western frontier. Today, it is the centerpiece of Wewoka’s festival; an event that celebrates the unique mix of cultures found in the Indian Territory.

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 Museum grounds. Antique farm implements, a tractor show, and other agricultural implements will be on display. Visitors can meet guest artists and craftsmen, watch the making of the sorghum, or just sit back and enjoy an Indian Taco or hot Indian Fry Bread topped with sweet sorghum, of course.

Downtown, the Wewoka Chamber of Commerce offers a parade, car show, art and photography show, live entertainment, food and sales booths.
