Annual Cotton Fest & Chili Cook-Off

November 6, 2021

Agriculture is a huge part of our economy, especially cotton!  So what better way to celebrate a successful crop, than by holding a huge festival?  For nearly a decade, the Cotton Festival and Chili Cook-Off has been a favorite event of many southwest Oklahomans.  Activities are held throughout the entire day which include the Chili Cook-Off, live entertainment, craft vendors, the Little Miss Cotton Boll Pageant, and much more!

The Pioneer Townsite Museum also features exhibitions of cotton farming from the early 20th century, including a mini-cotton gin.  Come learn all about 1920’s and modern cotton farming, including: cotton crafts, cotton spinning and weaving, cotton displays, Farm Equipment, and Tractor and educational displays.

Join us the first Saturday in November for a festival you won’t forget!
