Come and celebrate Bristow's Lebanese heritage with a day of festivities for the entire family. Tabouleh Fest celebrates Bristow's Middle Eastern ancestors that arrived in Oklahoma during the late 1800s. These immigrants brought with them tabouleh, also spelled tabouli, a fresh salad dish made with bulgur wheat, fresh vegetables, parsley, mint, olive oil and lemon juice. Today, this unique festival highlights Bristow's roots with food, music, traditional belly dancers and more. Visitors to Tabouleh Fest will enjoy craft vendors, carnival rides, the Miss Tabouleh Pageant, a children's area, talent show and an old-fashioned, hometown rodeo. Saturday's festivities kick off immediately following the annual Wildflower Run, one of the premier 5K runs in the state. Enjoy a wide variety of musical acts on the main entertainment stage, see which tabouleh recipe wins the top prize, or tour the only two tabouleh factories in Oklahoma. Don't miss the festival's tabouleh bar, where festival-goers can mix all of their favorite toppings into a tasty bowl of tabouleh.
