Featuring Meatloaf

Before there was The Room, before there was Showgirls, there was The Rocky Horror Picture Show. At Oklahoma City’s The Boom, fans of the deranged classic film can enjoy The Rocky Horror Picture Show Interactive Movie Experience while singing along with Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick, and some opera-loving guy on a motorcycle. Speaking of which, a meatloaf dinner is included with the price of the show. If you can’t make it this week, don’t worry. More shows are planned throughout the month. October 7-9. Tickets, $40. ticketstorm.com

All Gouda

Curd you brielieve America was celebrating its 200th birthday by the time Watonga held its first Watonga Cheese Festival? It’s like the people of 1975 Oklahoma knew Monterrey Jack about the whey of the cheesemonger. But don’t feel too bleu for them, because there’s a muenster of a good time to be had now. Watch as Watonga Mayor Bill Sietter cuts the honorary cheese, then attend cheese tastings, visit more than forty-five vendors, and take part in a cheesiest T-shirt contest. October 8-9. Admission, Free. watongachamber.org/cheese-festival

The Great State of...Tulsa

Please, remain calm. Tulsa is still part of Oklahoma. We understand that the Tulsa State Fair makes it sound like Tulsa is its own state, but it isn’t. If anything, the Tulsa State Fair is kind of a northeastern sequel to the recently concluded Oklahoma State Fair held in Oklahoma City, with many of the same shows, rides, and food vendors, just in Green Country. Music lovers will especially dig the lineup, as the Tulsa State Fair will showcase acts including P.O.D., Dru Hill, and Vanilla Ice, among others. Through October 10. Tickets, $8. tulsastatefair.com

Black Gold

There’s a rich reservoir of artistic talent bubbling under the surface of Oklahoma City, so leave it to Oklahoma City’s resident Clampetts, Jenny and Adam Brand, who tapped into a gusher with the Theatre Crude Fringe Festival. All this week, artists will perform an incredible array of genre-bending theatre projects, both online and at Factory Obscura, that don’t fit into the usual stage mold. Through October 10. Tickets, $5-$130. theatrecrude.org

No Beezus?

Every childhood is different. Some people played little league. Some people read books. Some people got into the storylines of General Hospital well before it was healthy. But for a taste of childhood not many of us had, take a trip to Ramona to the annual Oklahoma Heritage Farm Fall Festival. Wander through more than eleven acres of corn maze, scream on the way down the giant slides, take a shot with the pumpkin cannon, and more. Just don’t plan to go on a Monday, because even the farmers need a little rest from the non-stop fun of the fall festival. Through October 31, except for Mondays. Tickets, $8. ohffallfestival.com
