  Tastes, Trolleys and Kites Over Enid

Enid's quarterly Calendar of Events available here  April, May & June

With the weather finally looking like it's going to turn to spring, it's time to get our and explore. That's great timing for Enid, as this week's event calendar is loaded with fun, activities both outside and indoors, including the annual Kites Over Enid festival and the Frontier Festival at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center, and explore a children's museum without the children during A Taste of Adventure at Leonardo's Children's Museum! These and a whole lot more this week in Enid. 

Kites Over Enid

Kites Over Enid

Come celebrate National Kite Month by flying a kite at Kites Over Enid on Saturday and Sunday behind Autry Technology Center. It's Enid's annual kite celebration, and the goal of Kites Over Enid is to introduce - or reintroduce - the joy of kite flying to children and adults alike. For the third consecutive year, the flying team "Go Big or Go Home" will be here, bringing a team of experienced flyers who fly all types of kites but love the HUGE inflatables like Beaudreaux and Liz, the giant octopus kites. Join in the fun by bringing your own kite or purchasing a kite from an on-site vendor, and a food truck will also be on site throughout the festival. With temperatures forecast to be in the 70s both days, it should be a wonderful weekend to come fly a kite! Hours are 10 am-4 pm both Saturday and Sunday with free admission. 

Frontier Festival

Land Run Beer Fest Enid

Enjoy a hands on, family friendly event while learning what life was like at the time of the Cherokee Strip Land Run. The Frontier Festival on Saturday at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center will have several different stations for children to experience as they get a glimpse into what children did in the late 1800s. Learn how they did laundry and make rope, and eat from the chuck wagon of the Cast Iron Cowboy, Gary Don Smith. Admission is the regular museum fee of $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for students.

Trolley Tour

Enid now has its own trolley! The Chisholm Trail Coalition purchased a trolley car to use for tours along the Chisholm Trail, special events and more. Your chance to ride the trolley and take a tour of some of Enid's unique shopping locations on Tuesday during the Main Street Enid Trolley Tour. The evening begins with a mixer at 5 pm at On the Sidewalk Bar and Grill where attendees can catch up on upcoming events. The first 20 people who pay the $10 ride fee will then climb aboard "Trolley Bob," (named for Enid's Chisholm Trail historian Bob Klemme) for a tour around the square.

Leonardo's Taste of Adventure

A Taste of Adventure at Leonardo's Children's Museum on Friday night is a fun night for adults while supporting one of the top children's museums in the region. The night will include gourmet food from top local chefs, and you can vote on your favorite dish. Live entertainment and a chance to explore the museum with hands on activities after hours are part of the fun. Great items will be available to bid on during a live auction and unique items will be available with a silent auction. Tickets are $75 and monies raised will go toward scholarships for needy families in the area so they can attend summer camp and other educational programs.

Enid Home Show

The Enid Home Show Friday-Sunday at the Chisholm Trail Expo Center, is one of the most looked forward to shows among vendors and attendees of the year. With over 350 vendors in over 500 booth spaces, the Enid Home Show fills the Expo Center from end to end and wall to wall. Participating vendors travel to Enid from coast to coast bringing the newest products on the market available for purchase and taken home for immediate use and enjoyment. Hours are 12 pm-7 pm Friday, 9 am-7 pm Saturday and 11 am-5 pm on Sunday. Admission is $5 and children 12 and under are admitted free.
