Rooster Days Parade
Oklahoma hosts many festivals that are praise-worthy; and one of the biggest festivals is Rooster Days in Broken Arrow. The annual Rooster Days Festival dates have recently changed – the previously announced dates took place in May, but the new dates are now June 9 through June 12. Other changes, all progressive, are also occurring and add to the overall enjoyment of the festivities.
“We have transitioned to a Cashless system this year,” explains Amber Hinkle, Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce Events Director. “This means our guests will not have to stop and purchase food tickets, as they have had to do in years past. This year, they can use their personal debit and credit cards at all our food vendor locations, without having to first stop and purchase food tickets. If we have guests who prefer to use cash, we will have a “Cash to Card Coop,” where they can exchange their cash for a gift card that can be used on-site with our food vendors. We hope this allows attendees to get to the fun faster than ever before!”
Rooster Days is a long standing and important tradition to the city of Broken Arrow and indeed, many people within the state go out of their way to attend. The festival offers indoor and outdoor vendors, crowd favorite food stands, and entertainment in various forms. Musical acts are highly anticipated; and the change in dates for the festival has not affected the lineup.
“We were fortunate that all of our previously announced musical guests were available for these new dates, so our lineup remains the same,” asserts Hinkle.

“We are thrilled to be able to provide the Broken Arrow and surrounding communities with new ride options, new promotions and an updated midway experience,” enthuses Jennifer Conway, president and CEO of the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce. “We are looking forward to a great relationship with Wagner’s Carnival and all the new amenities and promotions they will provide to the Rooster Days festival.”
Well-known as the longest running festival in Oklahoma, Rooster Days is a family fun even for all ages. Attendees always look forward to making delightful new memories every year; the festival always has activities, food and music for all ages, and the Rooster Days Parade always a great favorite enjoyed by all.
