The Loose Caboose Antiques and Crafts Festival is an annual event that showcases the local antique dealers and craftsmen. There is always fun for the whole family and look forward to something new every year. So plan ahead for the next labor day weekend to visit Purcell, OK and be a part of the next Loose Caboose Festival.
What is The Loose Caboose Festival?
The Loose Caboose is back on track! This family oriented festival is held on the sidewalks of Main Street in the quaint and friendly town of Purcell, located just 15 minutes south of Norman, Oklahoma. Here you will find food, fun, music, antiques and collectibles.
The festival kicks off at 9AM on Saturday, September 2nd, 2006. A wide variety of live music will keep you entertained-- from the Star Spangled Banner, sung by Rebecca Chappell, gospel by Pam Rayburn, to the soulful sounds of Kristin Widner. At 11AM, Roy Barnes and the Keeners will have you tapping your toes to their famous style of blue grass. (You will also be laughing at Roy's impersonations)
The outdoors always makes you hungry, doesn't it? Well, we can help you there! Visit our food court where the Smokin' Okie will be offering up turkey legs and other smoked meats or enjoy the Indian Tacos or homemade caramel apples lovingly prepared by a local ladies group. Sodas and bottled water will be available to wash all these goodies down.
On stage in the afternoon are singers such as Andie Millsap and Chasity Watkins. Then you can relax with guitarist ,Parker Millsap.
Have a great time shopping at all the booths! You will see antique furniture, collectibles, ornamental iron, unique lawn critters, beautiful handmade jewelry, and much more. Oh! Don't miss the wine tasting brought to you by the Canadian River Winery and Vineyards! We haven't forgotten the little ones-- they can have fun at the children's game tent,too.
Many of our antique shops will be having special sales inside, too! Come meet our smiling merchants. We are eager to meet you. The festival winds down around 4PM, however most of our shops will be open till at least 5:30PM.
The Caboose is waiting for you!
