Pedal-Pumping Performance

Remember riding bikes? Warm summer days, a stiff Oklahoma tailwind, and the feel of the pavement jostling tires as you take in the scenery? Well, this isn't that. Head to the Oklahoma River in Oklahoma City's Wheeler District for the Wheeler Criterium bicycle races every Tuesday evening through May. Cheer for your favorites as they whip around the fast track while nibbling on fare from local food trucks, sipping a cold brew, and enjoying live music. March 28. Admission, free. wheelerdistrict.com

Better Than The Highway Harmonizers

Pinning down the "Oklahoma Sound" is nigh impossible, but there's no doubt some of that Sooner State je ne sais quoi comes from Red Dirt country. Settle in for a night of top-notch Okie singing and strumming when the Turnpike Troubadours hit the stage at Tulsa's BOK Center. Formed in eastern Oklahoma, this band has more than a decade of experience in making audiences hoot and holler. March 30. Tickets, $39.50-$149. bokcenter.com

Whether they're looking for a new tractor, trying out advanced farming techniques, or just hoping to buy a hot tub, the K-101 Farm Expo in Woodward welcomes all comers. Photo by Pexels

More Than Tractors

There's no doubt visitors to the Woodward County Fairgrounds this week can see all the latest advances in agriculture, from new equipment to updated methodology, but there's more than farming at the K-101 Farm Expo. Let everybody else pay attention to new fencing technology while you enjoy checking out ATVs, hot tubs, electronics, arts and crafts, and plenty of food vendors. And don't forget the kids, since there will be rides and booths aimed at those future farmers, too. March 31-April 2. Admission, free. woodwardeventcenter.com

Guzzling with Goats

While alcohol is certainly allowed at the Manor House Barn in Coyle during Sip and Snuggle, the event is open to all ages and all beverages. Cuddling and Coke? Nuzzling with Nehi? Hugging and hot chocolate? It's all good! Get a ticket and pack a picnic to hang out with baby goats from The Bearded Doe & Company. Enjoy a bit of nature by the big pond as you watch kids (young goats) play with kids (young humans). And for those whose tastes do tend toward the intoxicating, just drink responsibly for everyone's safety and it'll be a fun time. Best of all, during this Sip and Snuggle, veterans get in free. April 1. Tickets, $15-$18. thebeardeddoeandcompany.com

Want to be the greatest of all time? Head to Coyle for Sip and Snuggle, which gives visitors a chance to quaff some wine while holding an adorable baby goat. Photo by Christoph

Achtung, Baby!

Deutschland is a long (and wet) drive from Oklahoma, so for those hungering for a taste of Germany, it makes much more sense to head to Clinton for the German Feast & Auction at Corn Bible Academy. The event dates back to 1964, but don't worry—the food is all fresh this year. Enjoy lunch and dinner of authentic German fare including sauerkraut, sausage, zwieback, and more. And if both stomachs and wallets are full, break out the numbered paddles for an auction full of unique items. For a more sure thing, though, breads, jellies, cakes, and more will also be available to purchase. April 1. Tickets, $10-$15. cornbible.org

Oklahoma City’s Temple of Song

It might not be the Sooner State's largest setting for live music, but Oklahoma City has a hundred-seat chamber of pure song.
