Welcome to the Vinita Route 66 Festival!

Vinita Route 66 Festival

Get Your Kicks...

Join us in downtown Vinita, Oklahoma for a fun family event this summer! The 10th Annual Vinita Route 66 Festival begins June 14th with live music, food trucks and the popular Kids Zone Inflatable Park at the Friday night block party from 6-10 pm.

On Saturday, June 15th the fun will start back up at 8:00 am with a car show, live entertainment, a sidewalk chalk contest and power wheels car park and parade for the kids, and more. A wide variety of vendors are also expected along with our downtown merchants for shopping. In the afternoon, take time to "Explore Vinita" at open houses at local attractions, including the new Cherokee Cultural and Welcome Center and Eastern Trails Museum, to help beat the heat.

We're sure you'll enjoy your time in Oklahoma's second-oldest town, 150 years young in 2021, located within the Cherokee Nation reservation and once home to Cyrus Stephens Avery, the "Father of Rt. 66". History, shopping, food, and fun. We’re glad summer is on the way, and we hope to see you on the Mother Road!

Paint fund raiser

Join us for an evening of painting with Tulsa Artist Rosemary Daugherty. Miss Daugherty's latest work revolves around themes of Nostalgia, Tulsa, and Route 66. Her latest works have been featured on everything from coasters at Ida Red to posters and calendars for the TULSA SIGNATURE SYMPHONY. She also runs a successful business teaching classes, leading interactive, community art projects for festivals like the ROUTE 66 ROAD FEST in Tulsa, and designs a line of popular Tulsa and Route 66 themed paint by number kits as well as other art and educational products through her company, THE MOONLIGHT ART FACTORY.

Miss Daugherty will be on-site for this guided paint night as you put your twist on a 16” x 20” canvas of the classic Route 66 Shield.

This event, hosted by Vinita Friends of Route 66, will raise money for the community mural project, which will be held in June during the Vinita Route 66 Festival.

The cost is $40 per person, and light refreshments will be served. Space is limited, reserve your space now by submitting your payment to the following PayPal link; please include your name and contact information:
