National Day of the Cowboy
Celebrate National Day of the Cowboy 2022 with us, Saturday, July 23. Our theme this year is “Three States, One Trail.” Doors open at 10 a.m. This is the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center’s 12th year to host this event.
The schedule includes live music by Missy Frye and Gaylon Blankenship, basket weaving demonstrations by Pauline Asbury who will also be selling baskets, and live sketching by Jerry Bennett, who will be selling his comic books.
Since the first celebration in 2010, this local event has grown, attracting many visitors, many from out of the area. It has become a much-anticipated event for local families.
*Children’s art project will be available, made possible with funding from the Oklahoma Arts Council.
