The Red earth festival is a great example of what happens when people get greedy. When Red earth first started it focused on being a Native American festival comparable to any other in the country. The dancing catered to the participants and the art market competed with the likes of Santa Fe. It quickly fell from a celebration of Native... More

Spent the day at RED EARTH and it was so much fun. The parade is very colorful and celebrates Native Americans. The festival booths offer a variety of handmade items to purchase. I recommend this festival.

Don't miss this annual array of colors and culture. Teh paprade on Friday winds through the streets of downtown. Princesses and dancers show off their regalia. The Festival itself is filled with fine art, food and cultural demonstrations in a very welcoming and casual atmosphere.

It was a fantastic experience ..I recommend it to anyone anytime. It was majestic seeing all the authentic garb worn by the tribes and the dancing and chanting with the drums was amazing.

I've been to the Red Earth Festival many times. Other than the year it was moved to Remington Park (bad idea) it's always a pleasure to attend. There is a wide selection of art and craft from sources you are guaranteed are authentic, and the quality is excellent. In addition, the dance competitions are spectacular. You can watch excellent dancers... More

The Red Earth Festival is a great place to see and learn about the artistic, musical and historical aspects of Oklahoma's Native American citizens. As much as I love the REF, in recent years it has lost some of its flair and impact. The first few years it really was a great affair. The parade downtown was great and fun.... More
