Downtown is Important to Our Community!
Downtown is important because it is the most visible indicator of community pride. When a person comes to a new town for the first time, whether consciously or subconsciously, they make judgements about the character of the people who live there based on what they see. A thriving downtown area says that the people of this community are proud of who they are, proud of where they've come from and they are optimistic about the future.
Sallisaw Main Street will be hosting the Cruizin’ 64 Car Show and Chili Cookoff on Saturday, October 14th in the downtown Sallisaw area. The event will feature a car show, a blues concert with Connie Hawkins and the Blues Wreckers, a chili cook-off, followed by Sallisaw’s Cruise Night. There will also be lot’s of food vendors and of course, chili from the chili cook-off. We are currently looking for several pop-up vendors for the event. There is no cost for the set up and you can start setting up that morning on the library lawn at 8 a.m. If you would be interested in being a pop-up shop vendor please visit our event page here and fill out the registration form for a “Non-Food Vendor.” You can also email us at [email protected] or contact Carol Brown at 918-776-7920.
