Peachy Keen

Peach season is upon us, and the orchards in Porter are full to bursting with fruit. If farm fresh is your thing, make your way to the fifty-third annual Porter Peach Festival for a juicy experience. Buy peaches from several vendors, attend the arts and craft show, concerts, parade, and car show. Participate in the 5K run or display of your best peach recipes at the cooking and baking contests. For a western twist, stop by the open rodeo and tractor pulls. Don't forget to grab some homemade peach ice cream! July 18-20. Admission, free. (918) 636-3094 or porterpeachfestivals.com.

Can We Just Talk

At only 21, Khalid has already found wild success as an R&B singer/songwriter. His first album American Teen received Grammy nominations and went certified double platinum in 2018. Following the release of his second studio album, Free Spirit, Khalid kicked off his world tour of the same name, which arrives this week in Oklahoma City at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. Singer Clairo performs as a special guest. July 19. Tickets, $29.95-$333. (800) 653-8000 or ticketmaster.com.

Actually Nailed It

Ever try those Pinterest projects where the exemplary pictures look great, but the end product is a little less DIY and a little more DI-why? Lawton-based The Native Hippy, in conjunction with Ohio Comfort and Crafts, is offering a chance to end lousy project streaks with guided assistance at their Dip + Dye Macramé class. Learn to tie those luxurious knots and dye your piece to accentuate your style. All supplies are included in the price of the class and seating is limited. July 19. Admission, $60. (580) 704-6162 or thenativehippy.com.

Honey Honey, How They'll Thrill You

My my, how can you resist this musical? The perfect show for summer and a worldwide smash hit, Mamma Mia brings the spirit and fun of this ABBA-fueled production to the Gaslight Theatre in Enid. Director Christianne Chase and music director Brett Wilenzick are bringing this Broadway show (which spawned a couple of movies) to the Sooner State so everyone can enjoy an engaging story about self-discovery and love, set on the picturesque beaches of Greece. July 19-21 and July 25-28. Tickets, $9-$18. (580) 234-2307 or gaslighttheatre.org.

House Beautiful

Summer for kids often means freedom and fun, but for adults, it's home project season. Get some fresh inspiration at the Home and Garden Expo in Tulsa Expo Square. With over one hundred vendors, upgrade your plain-Jane backyard with decks, fire pits, lawn care, and spas to turn it into a dreamy sanctuary. Don't forget to stop by the gardening vendors to help your green space flourish with the hundreds of mulch, soil, and plant products available. July 19-21. Admission, free. (918) 523-2067 or coxradiotulsa.com.

Fresh to Depth

Swim-up bars are the coolest thing to have in your pool, which might explain why AquaPalooza Grand Lake in Afton is so popular. This concert is a "raft-up" event where hundreds of water lovers can tube, kayak, canoe, or however they want to float throughout the show. The four-hour concert features House Party, a Tulsa based cover band with a reputation for creating a solid party vibe. Enjoy the water, the music, and some friends at this all-out party on the lake. July 20. Admission, free. (918) 782-9546 or 360grandlake.com.
