Bird and Crystal Festival This Sat.

The 2023 Bird & Crystal Festival is just around the corner! Hosted by Cherokee Main Street, this festival is a must-attend event for crystal enthusiasts and families. The festival will be held this Saturday, April 22, starting at 9AM, at the Selenite Crystal Digging Area located at 66003 Garvin Road, Cherokee OK, 73728 (2 miles south & 5 miles east of Cherokee).

This year's festival promises to be a great event for all ages. There will be fun kid activities, snacks, and a crystal digging contest with prizes. The best part? The festival is completely free to attend!

If you're interested in joining in the crystal digging fun, be sure to bring all the necessary equipment including shovels, buckets, older clothes, towels, and sunscreen. Don't forget to wash your vehicle after leaving the dig site to get all the salt off.

This festival is a fantastic opportunity to spend time with your family and friends while enjoying the great outdoors and the thrill of finding beautiful and unique hourglass selenite crystals. So mark your calendars, gather your loved ones, and join us for a day of family fun and crystal digging excitement!
