The City of Sand Springs will be continuing the beloved annual Herbal Affair and Festival for the 28th year this April in downtown Sand Springs. 

According to the official City-operated Facebook page, the Herbal Affair was founded in 1989 by Ruth Leib of Sand Springs Greenhouse, and attracted more than 800 visitors. Nearly three decades later, the festival attracts more than 30,000 individuals to the heart our beloved community. It is considered the most successful herbal affair in the State of Oklahoma, and it is imitated in countless communities throughout the region.

This year the event will be held on Saturday, April 22nd, rain or shine. The festival is focused around the downtown Triangle Park and features more than 100 vendors of herbs, vegetables, garden decor, festival foods, art shows, local crafts, and more!
