The Owasso Chamber of Commerce announced it will soon host its first annual Redbud Festival Days.
The inaugural event, presented by TTCU Federal Credit Union, will be held Thursday-Saturday, May 4-6, in the heart of Owasso’s newly developed Redbud District.
“Redbud Days is opportunity to gather, interact and celebrate in downtown Owasso,” Owasso Chamber President Chelsea Feary said. “Communities need festivals to cultivate economic and cultural activity. We hope everyone will come out to have fun and enjoy the variety of events.”
Redbud Festival Days is the rebranding of the former Trail Days, which started as Progress Days in 1953 and then to its most recent title in 1984.
Held in conjunction with Owasso’s first Gathering on Main of the season, Redbud Festival Days will kick off Thursday with vendors, food trucks, a kids’ play zone, music and more, including a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the event.
