Events in Frederick, Oklahoma


Frederick is home to 10 ANNUAL EVENTS and several other pop-up events throughout the year.

If you are interested in visiting Frederick, we suggest you come on our weekend that coincides with one of our fabulous Annual Events!  We recommend the following:

The Frederick Fantastic Oyster Fry has been Frederick’s favorite event for 30 years.  Each year a member of the Oyster Fry Committee drives down to Port Levaca, TX and loads two deep freezers with 140 gallons of freshly caught oysters.  The oysters are packed in ice and immediately brought back to Frederick for breading and frying.
Please join us March 9 for our Fantastic Annual Oyster Fry!  More info…

For nearly a decade, the Cotton Festival and Chili Cook-Off has been a favorite event of many southwest Oklahomans.  Activities are held throughout the entire day which include the Chili Cook-Off, live entertainment, craft vendors, the Little Miss Cotton Bowl Pageant, Cotton Gin Tours and much more!   Join us on the first Saturday of November for a festival you won’t forget!
