Luther Pecan Festival
See you in 2021!
It’s hard to type the words, but we will not have the 2020 Luther Pecan Festival.
As the coronavirus crisis has forced so many of our favorite events and activities to cancel, it was unlikely the Luther Pecan Festival could proceed. While we certainly hope the virus spread will be under control, there is too much planning, too much investment and too much worry that goes into planning our sweet festival, for such a big risk. Not this year. Not 2020.
Thanks for understanding; and I welcome your feedback.
The Luther Pecan Festival began in 2017 and features pecans, art, live music, car show, quilt show, cookoff, raffle, more pecans and more pecan pie! Artists and food trucks, entertainment by Opus Entertainment, live music, cookoff and more, come join us in Luther. Get a head start on your holiday shopping as the finest local artisans and curators set up shop right in the middle of Main Street – we have clothes boutiques, skincare products from goats and donkeys, art from sculptors, woodworkers and painters, jewelry, herbs and more.
Thank you to our major sponsors for 2019 OGE, BancFirst and Opus Entertainment.

The Luther Pecan Festival began in 2017 as a new tradition born on Main Street of Luther, Oklahoma, as an effort to draw our community together, invite our city neighbors to come see us, showcase local artists and celebrate one of Oklahoma’s favorite speciality crops, pecans. Scheduled to coincide during harvest time at the local Luther orchard, Couch Pecans, and made possible by incredible sponsors and a squad of dedicated volunteers, the Luther Pecan Festival is a production of The Luther Register. We were named a finalist for the “top cultural event” for 405 magazine and were featured in the September/October 2020 issue of Oklahoma Today magazine. The festival has grown every year – with an estimated attendance of about 5,000 that first year. By the third year, there were well more than 12,000 attendees. It would be hard to social distance that many visitors during the year of 2020, so our plans are to pause and return, hopefully in 2021.
