The Forest Heritage Center in Beavers Bend State Park is the site of one of Oklahoma's most popular fall festivals. The Folk Festival & Craft Show kicks off on Friday, November 8 and runs through November 10. This is the 26th year for this popular free festival, which draws around 16,000 visitors and 70 vendors to Southeast Oklahoma, just in time for the beautiful fall colors. A stroll through the halls of the Forest Heritage Center is a glimpse into another time when paper and books were crafted by artisans, yarn was hand spun with natural fibers, and friends gathered together to strum on banjos and guitars. Visitors can enjoy one-stop holiday shopping by browsing through rooms filled with hand crafted wooden toys, arts and crafts, Oklahoma wine, and homemade quilts and aprons.
