OrangeFest is a community celebration hosted by Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology and the Main Street Association in downtown Okmulgee. The annual festival offers a day of free, family-friendly fun that includes live music, food trucks, a chalk walk, art displays, and culminates with a 5K Glo Run.

Admission and parking are free.


1:00 PM - 7:00 PM - CHALK WALK.  It’s time to paint the town orange... well, chalk the town orange at least. Participate in this year’s Chalk Walk on the Okmulgee Square sidewalk surrounding the Creek Council House.  The theme for this year’s Chalk Walk event is “OrangeFest” which may include OSU logos, Pistol Pete, or be interpreted in other ways (e.g. citrus). The design must incorporate the color orange.  Artists may begin their artwork at 1:00.  Judging will take place at 7:00 pm.  Click here to download rules & entry form.
