It's time for Fall-A-Days

The 20th annual Fall-A-Days Festival is set for Oct. 19-21 at the Woodward County Fairgrounds.

Shawn Miller, show director with Omni Media Group, said it is also the fourth year that the festival will feature a special Made in Oklahoma section.

He said this section will include a sampling of the 36 wineries which are now flourishing in Oklahoma, including Plymouth Valley Cellars, which is based near Fairview.

In addition to the selection of wineries, the Made in Oklahoma corner will also feature an Oklahoma City based company that makes barbecue sauce and a gourmet cook from Enid among others, Miller said.

Woodward’s own Covington’s Cycle City will also have “a big spread back there,” he said, and will have a number of their custom-made, high-end motorcycles on display. The festival will also be bringing in a variety of other vendors from all across the country, Miller said. In fact, he said there will be one exhibitor who is coming all the way from Orlando, Fla.

Miller explained that bringing in these various vendors is one of the biggest goals of the festival, since it is intended to get everyone “in the mood for holiday shopping.”

“This show is geared toward early holiday shopping,” he said.

If you are looking for a special present, you just might find it at Fall-A-Days which he said is offering everything arts and crafts like leather work to big boy toys like pickup trucks from Irwin Auto Company.

To help get everyone in the holiday spirit, representatives for the Woodward Chamber of Commerce will be on hand to promote this year’s Crystal Christmas celebration, Miller said.

He said other exciting aspects of this year’s festival include an appearance by the “oilfield cowboy” Wes St. John, fun inflatable games for the kids, and a number of food vendors offering up tasty treats.

He also noted that for the past five years an average of 22,000 people from Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas have attended the three-day festival.
