Welcome to the 2017 Route 66 Patriotfest! Our goals are to honor our patriots, showcase Tulsa, the most patriotic city, to highlight Route 66 and provide for veterans in Tulsa. We accomplish this with the only cruise from East to West through Tulsa where you don't have to stop and that's only the beginning!  

On behalf of all the volunteers that help produce the Route 66 Patriotfest, we hope you come out have a great time, and continue to make Tulsa the most Patriotic City and benefit our Veterans!"

John Fothergill, 2017 PatriotFest


On Memorial Day Weekend, Southwest Tulsa, the birthplace of Route 66, will be jam packed with fun-filled activities for everyone. Alongside the Mother Road you will find hot rods of all makes and models, food trucks on Southwest Blvd (near Route 66 Historical Village), arts & crafts vendors, military displays, and a super-fun FREE KidZone. Children will line up to try all the fun activities – while hot-rodders line up to sport their roadsters in the Show and Cruise from the East Gateway to the West Gateway. Meanwhile, local musicians, art galleries and memorabilia displays will exhibit the history, culture, and charm of the Mother Road and our Most Patriotic City. 

Proceeds benefit Folds of Honor and other local veteran and military organizations. Donations are being accepted (see HOME page). Route 66 Main Street is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

It’s amazing what we can do when we come together.
