Holiday Bazaar

Cheese Apple

Friday, November 18, 2016

Held annually on the Friday before Thanksgiving, the Holiday Bazaar features baked goods, craft items, cheese apples, Christmas decorations and an assortment of other goodies.  A lunch time meal is also served.

Begun in 1975, the annual Holiday Bazaar is the primary fundraiser for the Seminole Nation Museum.  The event is a community-supported project that depends on the generosity and involvement of area citizens in donating baked goods, hand-crafts, grab bag and white elephant items.  Proceeds from the event are used in support of the Museum’s programs and services and to help defray extensive operating costs. 

A perennial favorite of the event are the cheese apples.  One of the most sought after confections sold at the event, the cheese apple has been a part of the Wewoka community since Helen Ellwanger began making them in the 1940s.
