Safely Celebrating America’s Main Street

Join the Vinita Friends of Route 66 this Friday evening, June 19th from 6 -9 pm in Vinita for an old-fashioned dragging Main event and live music from the band Broken Aces. Cruise Route 66 from the east to west ends of Vinita as you enjoy our live remote and classic 50s tunes from KGVE 99.3 FM. 

All vehicles are welcome to participate – from the restored classic to the family minivan. Grab dinner and snack specials at one of our great restaurants, convenience stores or snack shops for a family tailgate and enjoy a fun Friday night.

When you want a cruise break, bring your food, beverages and lawn chairs to the Oklahoma State Bank parking lot at the intersection of Wilson St. (Route 66) and Canadian Ave where the band will be playing for your summer evening enjoyment. 

 Those individuals staying safer at home can join us on the radio, Facebook, and watch online from the Route 66 camera on top of First National Bank at https://www.bankvinita.com/Bank-Information/Route-66-Live-View.

The Vinita Friends of Route 66 would like to thank the major underwriter for this year’s festival, the Grand River Dam Authority, and acknowledge other primary support provided by Clanton’s Café, 66 Apparel, O’Neal Design, Oklahoma State Bank, First National Bank and the Vinita Daily Journal. 

We hope you enjoy the 2020 Festival modified for social distancing guidelines and continue to watch our Facebook page and this website as details for next year’s festival come together.
