Annual Oatmeal Festival

 Held Labor Day weekend, and Sponsored by Three Minute

Brand Oats.

The  year  2014  makes 37 years for

the Oatmeal Festival.    It started in 1977, with a goal in mind to keep the neighboring small community  

of  Oatmeal on the map, due to

map-makers ignoring the

tiny town.


The weekend event starts in the Community of Oatmeal with a

B-B-Q dinner and the Miss Oatmeal Pageant.    A trail ride moves

the festival to Bertram on Saturday morning, which includes a parade in downtown Bertram.  This year the

Oatmeal Festival will be held in

the streets of downtown Bertram.

The Festival offers fun for everyone, arts and craft booths, games for young and old.  It also features a baking contest the only trick, your recipe must include oatmeal.
