For entertainment, visitors can “get their kicks” at a variety of museums including the National Route 66 Museum, Old Town Complex and the one-of-a-kind Transportation Museum, which gives a great education in the history of how automobiles, trains and plains impacted travel in the United States. The Farm and Ranch Museum showcases decades of equipment used to harvest crops in the second largest industry in the state and the Blacksmith Museum takes you back to a time forgotten.
Elk City also hosts plenty of events each year for tourists and visitors to enjoy. From the Southwest Farm and Home Expo in April, the annual PRCA Rodeo of Champions on Labor Day weekend, the Fall Festival in September featuring the best in arts and crafts and the Oklahoma National Junior Heifer Show in November brings visitors from all over to showcase their stock. The Annual Flea Market, sponsored by Western Oklahoma Historical Society is held on the first weekend in October at Ackley Park on old Hwy 66, a very popular 3 day event for the family. The largest Christmas light display in Southwest Oklahoma, Christmas in the Park, brings back old fashioned family traditions with train rides on the candy cane express, old fashioned horse-drawn carriage rides, light tours and of course, kids of all ages enjoy riding the Centennial Carousel.
