About the Festival

OrangeFest originated in the late 1980’s when OSU Institute of Technology (aka OSU-Okmulgee) hosted an annual open house event on campus known as Super Weekend featuring activities that the whole community could enjoy while showcasing the academic programs that defined “OSU Tech.”
