      Visit Wewoka for a fun-filled day at the Sorghum Festival.  This fall festival is a celebration of Wewoka's history and the history of sorghum production in the town.  Sorghum is a sweetener, similar to molasses, that was primarily used in pioneer times.  At 10am, decorated floats, antique tractors, show horses and marching bands will make their way through downtown Wewoka in the annual parade.  After the parade, visit the car show to admire classic cars of all makes and models. 

      The Seminole Nation Museum grounds will host sorghum mill demonstrations throughout the day, complete with a vintage mill that uses mules for power.  Watch as the sorghum cane is ground on the mill and the juice from the cane is boiled down into syrup.  Old-fashioned artisans will demonstrate tool and soap-making, among other things. 

      Browse over 100 craft and merchandise vendor booths to find one-of-a-kind handmade items, toys, clothing and more.  Stop by the food vendors for a bag of kettle corn, Indian tacos and fry bread, hamburgers and other tasty treats.  The Sorghum Festival offers many children's activities, as well as live entertainment and an art and photography show.  With so many activities and events, all ages are guaranteed to have a great time at Wewoka's Sorghum Festival. Read Less -
