The Tiny Oklahoma Town That Transforms Into A Watermelon Wonderland Each Year

Attention, watermelon lovers! There’s an annual festival that celebrates the local crop of watermelons in Rush Springs this August and you won’t want to miss it. It’s filled with watermelon-themed activities, contests, food, family entertainment, and more. We all know there’s nothing better than a cold slice of watermelon on a hot summer day, so mark your calendars to attend this fun event.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Saturday, August 11: Festival from 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
