Your sponsorship dollars help support Bixby's most popular family event.
On May 4th and 5th, Washington Irving Memorial Park In Bixby, Oklahoma will once again host the Bixby BBQ'n Blues Festival. The festival is two days of the State’s best Barbeque and music all rolled into one and is a community fundraiser created by the Rotary Club of Bixby.
This is great for those families and individuals attending the festival. The famous “taster kits” can be purchased on Saturday for only $10. Taster kits allow one to sample the food from every competitor at the event. On Saturday from 11:00a.m.- 1:00p.m, the public can sample the barbeque from the competing teams. This is essentially a "walking Buffett". They can also vote for their favorite Team to win the People’s Choice Award.
There is a huge area that is dedicated to kids. Jupiter Jump, Giant Slide, miniature horses, face painting and clowns are enough to keep all the kids happy and allow parents to enjoy the food and the music.
The Rotary Club of Bixby used funds from past festivals to build the new Rotary Club of Bixby Amphitheater which is located in Washington Irving Memorial Park. Proceeds from the first festival enabled the Club to present Bixby Public Schools with a large electronic marquee sign, complete with a digitized message board. Located on Memorial Drive. The sign promotes school activities from PTA meetings to athletic events.
Volunteers are a huge contributor to the success of the event. "Every year, we are blown away by the support and numbers of individuals that dedicate their time to help us put this event on," stated Fred Beasley, Past President of the Bixby Rotary Club. "It is great to know that our efforts to better serve the community are in turn supported greatly by our community."
