Red Dirt Harvest Festival in Okemah, Oklahoma

Oklahoma Music & Wine Festival Labor Day Weekend
September 1st and 2nd, 2007

Grape Ranch has teamed up with The Red Dirt Rangers to present The Red Dirt Harvest Festival at Grape Ranch. The Grape Ranch winery and vineyard is located six miles South of Okemah, Oklahoma about half way between Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Many Oklahoma wineries host harvest festivals, but none are remotely like the event Grape Ranch hosts. Think of this as sort of an Oklahoma Wine Woodstock...three days of fun and music from a huge number of Oklahoma music acts with camping on site!

Tickets purchased in advance are for the entire weekend and cost $30. Tickets can be purchased at the gate for $20 a day or $40 for the weekend or in advance at the Grape Ranch Winery, online at TicketWeb.com or at Get The Point (SW Corner Britton & North Penn) in OKC.

Free camping is available under any of the over 100 pecan trees on the bottom land adjacent to the river. Campground opens Friday morning and closes at Monday 7pm. The campsites are primitive with no electrical hookups. RVs and quiet generators are welcomed. Please feel free to bring a blanket or reasonably size lawn chair. Please, no umbrellas.

Food vendors will be available Friday 6pm-10pm, Sat 8am-10pm ,Sunday 8am-10pm and Monday 8am -11am (for Breakfast). Beer, Ice and drinking water available for purchase on premise.
