Frederick Oklahoma Free Wheel Food and Craft Vendors Needed!
The Frederick Chamber of Commerce has begun taking applications for food and craft vendors for Oklahoma Free Wheel, which will be in Frederick on Saturday, June 9th, and Sunday June 10th.

Non-profits have until Friday, May 4th to claim their food item. Full payment must be received prior to the deadline to secure the spot, and each 10x10 food area is $20. Food vendors will be set up on the south side of Floral Ave, and no electricity or canopies can be provided. Food vendors are needed for Sat, June 9th, from 12 noon- until 9 pm, and breakfast food vendors are needed from 5am- 10am on Sunday June 10th. Any and all types of craft vendors are also welcome, craft spots will also be 10x10 for $20.

Oklahoma Free Wheel is a cross-Oklahoma bicycle tour that occurs in June, and Frederick is the first stop for the tour. Nearly 700 cyclists, along with support crews, will be arriving in Frederick on Saturday, June 9th, and leaving in the early hours on Sunday, June 10th. Most of them will be camping on the lawn of the Tillman County Courthouse and around the Pioneer Townsite Museum Area. Vendors are needed to offer all sorts of foods and homemade goodies, and items to purchase.
