  • The seventeenth annual Septemberfest will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Governor’s Mansion and Oklahoma History Center. Hosted by Governor Mary Fallin and First Gentleman Wade Christensen, Septemberfest is a free event for the whole family.
     
    Septemberfest features a variety of attractions for visitors of all ages. Families will have an action-packed day of entertainment.
     
    Activities at the Governor’s Mansion include: arts and crafts, carriage and pony rides, food vendors, chalk art, Oklahoma performers, chuckwagon cooking, Clydesdales, inflatables, sports activities, and rock climbing wall.
     
    Continuing with the family-friendly entertainment, the Oklahoma History Center, located across Northeast 23rd St. from the mansion, will bring the past to life. Along the Red River Journey visitors will enjoy interaction with living historians representing WWII, cowboys, land run participants, nineteenth century American Indians, antebellum musicians, the Civil War, plein air painters, and more. The history adventure continues inside the History Center with learning stations, hands-on activities, demonstrations, games, storytelling, and unique exhibits about Oklahoma.
     
    Guests can hunt for hats throughout the exhibits, make their own hat, and enjoy a passport as they visit the living historians along the Oklahoma History Center’s Red River Journey.
     
    Some new and exciting features this year at the Oklahoma History Center include an outdoor music venue that highlights musicians from our great state, including Kyle Dillingham, Sarah Dye, and Carter Sampson.
