It's almost time for the 2019 Bigfoot Festival and Conference in Honobia, Oklahoma It all takes place October 4 and 5. I can't even tell you just how much I love this festival and I look forward to it every year. Seriously, how often are you driving somewhere and actually come across a Bigfoot Crossing sign? 

Honobia, pronounced Hone-ah-bee, is a small community in the Little River valley in the Kiamichi Mountains.

This festival has been going on since 2005, but according to an article at Oklahoma, the first sightings in the area go back to 1848 and many more throughout the years including the more recent story of The Siege at Honobia.

The Honobia Bigfoot Festival was listed as the #1 Bigfoot Festival in the nation a couple of years ago from the Hauntist website. I love watching this festival get bigger every year.

There are always booths with great arts, crafts and food. Both Friday and Saturday evening it's storytime by the big campfire as people gather around and talk about their encounters with Bigfoot.

Another great thing about this festival is it's free to attend.

The conference does cost but definitely worth it for the guest speakers who are experts in all things Bigfoot from footprints to capturing bigfoot on film. To attend the conference it's usually only $10 per day for Adults 16 years and older with tickets sold at the door.  A portion of the proceeds from the conference and donations go toward college scholarships for local students.

Be sure to visit the Honobia Bigfoot Festival website for more information. They have a Facebook page too.

Below are pictures from the past couple of years.
