Bethany 66 Festival This Saturday

Features Free Quilt Show Benefiting Regional Food Bank

May 20, 2013

OKLAHOMA CITY – This Saturday, stop by the Bethany 66 Festival in downtown Bethany.  Events include: a Quilt Show to benefit hungry kids; classic car and motorcycle show; arts and crafts; food vendors and live music; a parade and more. 

“100 percent of quilt and 1905 Cookbooks will be donated to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to feed hungry children,” said Judy Howard from Buckboard Quilts, who has already donated to fight childhood hunger through quilt sales.  “One in four children in Oklahoma struggles with hunger.  Join me at the festival and help fight hunger in Oklahoma.”

More than 200 antique and small art quilts will be on display for purchase from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Route 66 Gallery, which is located at 6728 NW 39th in Oklahoma City.

Howard’s new cookbook for cooks, foodies and historians will also be available for purchase.  The cookbook is based on recipes from pioneer days in central Oklahoma. Recipes like Molasses Drop Cake and Roast Beef with Oyster Dressing entice the taste buds.  . In addition to this amazing and often amusing collection of 300 epicurean delights, Howard's book is flavored with 200 turn-of-the-century photographs, 1905 merchant ads and stories of our 89er/pioneers who compiled the original cookbook found at a flea market. This cookbook will complement any cook's recipe collection and is the perfect gift for a $15 donation to the Regional Food Bank.
