STAKE YOUR CLAIM FOR FUN IN ENID, OKLAHOMA 

Enid is a city that prides itself on its Old West heritage while featuring modern facilities, attractions and other amenities.

Enid sits directly on the paths of two historic events that helped shape our nation: the Chisholm Trail and the Cherokee Strip Land Run of 1893, the largest competitive event in U.S. history where over 100,000 land-hungry pioneers raced for 40,000 free plots of land. Step inside the only remaining land office from the seven Oklahoma land runs at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center, a ten million Smithsonian-quality museum.

Children will enjoy the six million renovation of Leonardo’s Children’s Museum, a hands-on arts and science facility with a two-story Power Tower inside and a three-story castle outside known as Adventure Quest, the world’s largest community-built playground.

Enid’s Arts & Entertainment District is one of only seven certified cultural districts in Oklahoma. The Gaslight Theatre presents nine plays of all genres each season, performers known worldwide entertain audiences at the Enid Symphony Center, home to Oklahoma’s longest-running symphony, while the CNB Center is home to world-class concerts. Embrace Enid’s Western-themed and contemporary sculptures as well as many vibrant murals, and enjoy regional performing and presenting artists displaying their talent during the First Friday of every month April-November.
