The Rooster Days festival committee announced they are moving forward with three Rooster Day events: Miss Rooster Days Run, Rooster Days Pageant and Rooster Days Cornhole Tournament.

Originally, Oklahoma's longest running festival, was scheduled to celebrate its 89th year on Sept. 3-6, 2020. In June 2020, festival officials decided to cancel the event due to the rise of coronavirus cases in the state.

Officials said they felt they could preserve a portion of the festival by proceeding with the run, pageant and cornhole tournament in a safe way. Also, they felt it is important to still give away a $4,000 scholarship to a student for the Miss Rooster Days Pageant.

Canceling Oklahoma’s longest consecutively running festival was an incredibly difficult decision. We know how important this event is to the community. I was happy to see the committee willing to dig deep and find a way to preserve a few of our cherished traditions.
