Annual Cotton Fest & Chili Cook-Off

November 4, 2017

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 Bowl Pageant, Cotton Gin Tours 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.

The Frederick Chamber of Commerce is proud to once again partner with Trade Day & Downtown Market. If you are interested in being a vendor at the Cotton Festival & Chili Cook Off contact Jay or Katherine Sharp at 580-335-7847 or Trade Day FB page.

Join us Saturday, November 4 for a festival you won’t forget!
