Have a Taste of Cherokee County
Playing host during the holiday season is a treat for some and a nightmare for others. Below we shared some of our favorite recipes from a local cookbook, Taste of Cherokee County, to help ease the pain of what to cook. We encourage you to share your experiences if you make or have made any of these dishes in the comments section!
Happy Holidays and happy eating!
Drinks are essential to host a great dinner party. They have the ability to start conversation and help people relax as they make their way around the room full of people. Here are some fun ideas to add to your holiday gathering!
Appetizers and Pre-Meal Options
All recipes are from Taste of Cherokee County, a cookbook that was produced from compiled recipes from residents, as well as the chamber cookbook planning committee.
The cookbook is for sale in the Tahlequah Area Chamber of Commerce at all times, while supplies last.
November - A Time to Celebrate
Tahlequah has had a lot of growing this past year and has a lot to be thankful for: two high school football teams fighting to keep their season alive through the state playoffs, another very successful year along the water and most importantly a continuously ever growing community.
With the year seemingly coming to a close, it's time for the holidays to begin. Here are a few reasons to spend some time in Tahlequah this November.
What are you thankful for this season? Use the comment section to tell us about your favorite Tahlequah memory thus far and what you hope to experience next.
As we get closer to Thanksgiving and the end of November we are starting to experience the first of the colder weather. As the leaves are beginning to fall, our winter activities are starting to take off. So grab your jacket, gloves, and whatever else you need to brave the cold and lay out your calendar for the must-attend events.
Looking for inside fun? We can't blame you.
Have another winter time local favorite? We want to know. Leave it in the comments so we can share with others as they visit Tahlequah!

Tenkiller State Park
Tenkiller State Park is known as Oklahoma's “heaven in the hills.” The sparkling blue waters of Lake Tenkiller offer water enthusiasts an abundance of recreational opportunities between 130 miles of shoreline and 13,000 surface acres. The park’s plentiful amenities make it a favorite destination for all ages.
Tenkiller State Park features two multi-use trails and one nature trail. The Tenkiller Multi-Use Trail is a handicap accessible paved trail 1.5 miles in length. Children 16 and under may catch their limit of three fish per day with no charge or permit required in the kids' fishing pond at Tenkiller State Park.

Rockin R Farms
Located on the edge of Tahlequah, Rockin R Farms is here to create some fall spirit and fun for the community. Activities include the corn maze, pumpkin patch with locally grown pumpkins, tractor rides, petting zoo, slides and more for all ages. Pick out your own pumpkin and then catch a ride around the farm on the tractor. The animals at the petting zoo can't wait to see you!
As the fall weather sets in, the setting is perfect for spending a day outside with family and friends. This upcoming weekend, visitors and residents alike will fill the streets of Downtown Tahlequah and the grounds of the Murrell Home. There may be two events, but you don't have to choose only one. You can visit both!
