The one constant at the Arden Fair is the weather. It is always a beautiful day. The home grown event premiered the year Teddy Roosevelt became President, when the Indian Territory merged with the Oklahoma Territory to create the 46th state, when laborers on the Panama Canal (aided in large part by DuPont blasting powder) were paid the then monumental wage of $.90 daily with 3 squares costing $.30.

Vendors galore and thousands of sun drenched fair goers. Very very family friendly!

The "Music In The Grove" is always jam packed AND the price is right! The Grove is directly behind The Gild Hall and shaded by ageless trees.

10:00 am to 11:00 am Diamond State Concert Band 

11:15 am to 11:45 am Rob Tietze duo
