Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The 14th annual Chuck Wagon Festival, considered one of the great family-friendly festivals, is coming back to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum Memorial Day weekend.

On May 29 and 30 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., the entire family - young and not so young - will be able to enjoy mouthwatering food, activities for the kids, musical entertainment and viewing premier western art.

Last year, the festival, rated by the American Bus Association as a 2004 Top 100 event in North America, caught the attention of the Food Network, which will feature the 2003 festival on its Top Five: Summer Sensations program.

Chuck wagon activities and museum admission, excluding tasting bowls and concessions, are included in the price of admission - adults, $10; seniors 62 and over, $8.50, and children ages 6 to 12, $5. Younger children are admitted free. Two-day passes are available and tasting bowls for the food are $3 each.

The festival is presented by Delta Air Lines. The Chuck Wagon Gathering is in partnership with Pace Picante Sauce. Co-sponsors include the Merrick Foundation, The Oklahoman, Great Plains Coca- Cola and OG&E. Additional support is provided by KKNG, Bar-S Foods, Sara Lee Bakery Group, Shawnee Milling Co., Oklahoma Ford Dealers, Collins Creek Ranch, Cabot Cheese and Marianne's Rentals.

New at this year's event will be the trick horse, Ice, owned by Johnny and Cheryl Blasier of Coyle. The horse has appeared on Jay Leno's television show. Also new this year will be Express Clyde and Pony Show + 1, featuring Oklahoma City Blazer Coach Doug Sauter, the 7-year-old Clydesdale Blazer; the donkey, RedHawk, and miniature horse, Taxi.

H.P. Hedgethicket III, Esq., will return to hawk his many remedies and cures during a hilarious Old West Medicine Show.

Wheelwright and wagon master Gary Stull, Cape Fair, Mo., will do demonstrations; John Fry, Newalla, will demonstrate the steam traction engine; and Gary Robinson, Edmond, will demonstrate blacksmithing techniques.

Musical entertainment on May 29 will be singer-composer Don Edwards and the Quebe Sisters, fiddlers. On stage May 30 will be Red Steagall, poet, author, actor and radio personality who has been inducted into the museum's Hall of Great Westerners. Guitarist Rich O'Brien will appear with Steagall. Cheryl Rogers Barnett, daughter of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, will be at the museum both days to talk with visitors and to sign her new book, Cowboy Princess.

The food? Fantastic. Nine chuck wagon crews will cook stew, brisket, sourdough biscuits, beans, cobblers and rice pudding for sampling. …
