Rural Heritage Festival
The Rural Heritage Festival provides an educational, and fun experience to the public that will increase awareness of the rural heritage of Oklahoma. Conducted throughout the day will be living history interpretations and various demonstrations to help visitors understand traditional skills and lifestyles associated with agriculture and rural communities. Antique tractors will be on display this year, along with blacksmiths, rope making, spinning, chuck wagon cooking, and a settlers' camp. Rose Hill School will be in session and students will wrap the MayPole.
The events held in Perry April 27th are designed for families and for people of all ages. We are celebrating our community heritage and welcome everyone to join us for the day full of fun, relaxation, and friendship.
Co-sponsors for the Rural Heritage Festival at the museum are the Oklahoma Historical Society and the Cherokee Strip Historical Society. The Museum's Rural Heritage Festival is held in conjunction with Perry's Spring Festival, sponsored by the Perry Chamber of Commerce. Spring Festival events will be held on the courthouse square.
