The Baker Buffalo Festival had been a yearly event since 1981 to raise money for individual Baker schools and to increase tourism and interest in the City of Baker. Once centering on a rodeo, it has since changed to focus on schools, families and now, BUFFALO WINGS!!!
On Saturday, September 17 we will have the Running of the Buffaloes 5K Run/Walk at BREC's Greenwood Park on the ExxonMobil walking trail that circles the beautiful lake.
The Festival will be held September 22 - 24 at Baker City Park. We have many family-friendly events including a talent contest; spelling bee; art contest; and Carnival Rides this year.
On Saturday, September 24 we will have a parade at 10:00 a.m., NTUNE 3:00PM - 5:00PM; a magician and the Total Control Band 6:00PM - 8:30PM.
For the fourth year in a row, we will have a buffalo wing cook-off.
We have a large presence of regional enforcement personnel to educate the public on fire safety, check for proper child-safety seats and personal welfare.
