Green Corn Festival a Bixby Tradition

FUN TIMES: Miss Bixby 2020 and her 1st and 2nd runner ups had a fun time at this year’s Green Corn Festival.

In Bixby, the biggest event of the summer is the annual Green Corn Festival.
Held in downtown Bixby, it is a true community celebration, dating back to the area’s agricultural heritage. This year, the event was again a popular and fun time.
The festival is designed as good, old-fashioned, family-oriented fun. The event features live music, arts and crafts, food, and a carnival.
A talent show, to highlight area youth, was held at the Bixby Community Center. The Green Corn parade entertained the crowds Saturday morning before a day of games and contests for the young and young at heart.
Charley Young Park’s gazebo stage in downtown Bixby (1 block south and east of 151st Street and Memorial Drive) was the site of on-going live music throughout the festival.
The park was surrounded by food and craft booths and was the site of most of the festival’s games and contests.
Just a hop and skip to the north was the carnival with the ferris wheel. Visitors cooled off during the heat of the day by joining in a few games of Bingo at the Bixby Community Center.
