Every year, in May, Washington Irving Memorial Park in Bixby is transformed into the largest BBQ festival in all of Oklahoma. It is two days of the State’s best Barbeque and music all rolled into one and is a community fundraiser created by the Rotary Club of Bixby.

The Rotary Club of Bixby used funds from past festivals to build the Rotary Club of Bixby Amphitheater which is located in Washington Irving Memorial Park.

Every Tuesday the Rotary Club of Bixby has the finest lunch programs in the area. We enjoy wonderful meals, as well as informative and entertaining speakers. Guests and visitors are welcome to attend.

We meet at Holiday Inn Express located at 8405 E. 102nd Street Tulsa, OK 74133.
