If you’re looking for free family fun close to home, check out the annual Czech Festival in Yukon. The festival is one of the largest free festivals in Oklahoma and shares Czech heritage and customs with local residents. The Czech festival is held the first Saturday in October, and this year’s festival will feature dancing, music, traditional Czech food, and more.
The festival kicks off Friday at 5:00 pm with a carnival complete with rides, craft booths, and games. The fun continues Saturday with a parade beginning at 10:00 am at Garth Brooks Boulevard and Main.
There will also be a car and motorcycle show and more than 2500 homemade kolaches to enjoy. The highlight of the Czech Festival is the festival dance held at the Yukon Czech Hall. Put on your dancing shoes because the music begins at 5:30 pm and doesn’t stop until midnight.
