Stardew Valley, But Real

Bring your favorite farming simulation game to the real world at the Tulsa Farm Show, where buyers and looky loos alike can roam 400,000 indoor square feet of farming fun. Now in its twenty-seventh year, this agricultural utopia brings all the supplies a farmer could need—tractors, harvest equipment, cattle management supplies and more. With more than 300 companies present, this event is the largest indoor farm show in Oklahoma. February 25-27. Admission, Free. (507) 437-7969 or tulsafarmshow.com

This Little Piggy

Caring for livestock is not so simple, which is why Oklahoma starts our ranchers out young. The Oklahoma County Junior Spring Livestock Show showcases some of the most talented junior livestock breeders in the state, as well as their herds. Pigs, horses, and sheep are just a few of the animals to be seen at the event. February 26-27. Admission, Free. (405) 713-1125 or extension.okstate.edu

History Revealed

Jonita Mullins knows history. Not only was she recently featured on the Oklahoma Today Podcast, she's also an author and historian bringing new relevance to the Muskogee area. Join her for a lesson in Oklahoma’s rich African-American history on the Creek Freedmen in Indian Territory Caravan Tour. Attendees will learn about the pioneering figures in a very tumultuous time in our state’s history. February 27. Tickets, $20. (918) 348-6648 or okieheritage.com

Better Than Red Bull

Coffee. Tea. A jump into an ice-cold lake. There are many ways to give yourself a jolt of up-and-at-'em, but none is classier than the Oklahoma City Philharmonic's Burst of Energy. Conductor Alexander Mickelthwate and master pianist Valery Kuleshov will have your synapses firing on all cylinders with Shostakovich's Concerto for Piano No. 2 in F major, op. 102, Ravel's Le Tombeau de Couperin, and Prokofiev's Symphony No. 1 in D major, op. 25, “Classical” at the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City. If you haven't already gotten a ticket, you can enjoy a delayed livestream of the concert from the comfort of your own living room. February 27. Tickets, $26. (405) 842-5387 or okcphil.org/concerts/shostakovich

Weapon of Choice

It's tempting to say something like "arms enthusiasts will find anything they could possibly need this weekend at the Oklahoma Gun Show," but let's be realistic. Rifles? Yes. Handguns? Yes. Hunting knives? Of course. But will anyone be selling the Infinity Gauntlet? Can you pick up Excalibur? Will there be sharks with laser beams on their heads? No. Still, if you're looking for a wide—if not mythical—selection, the Oklahoma State Fair Park will have a multitude of options from which to choose. February 27-28. Admission, $13. (918) 955-1092 or oklahomagunshows.com
