“The band and I are very excited to return to WestFest to headline this year,” musician Beau Jennings said. “It’s always great to be part of events that go a long way towards enriching the community.

“Mark it on your calendars. Bring a lawn chair. Wear your earplugs. And get a sitter.”

Beau Jennings and the Tigers have been hard at work at a new album, and they’ve been putting a lot of studio time into it. Jennings also won the 2017 WoodyFest Songwriting Contest and will be performing twice in Okemah, OK July 14 to July 17 in honor of Woody Guthrie.

WestFest is made possible with the help of community partners and sponsors: New Belgium Fat Tire, MidFirst Bank, Hideaway Pizza, Capital Distributing, Oklahoma Shirt Company, Savory Spice Shop, Beck’s Garage, Deep Fork Group and Guestroom Records.

The Western Avenue Association serves to promote and facilitate the good times and good finds on Western Avenue through community engagement, small business support and everything in between.
