Special this week: Holiday Food Drive

Help Feed the Hungry this holiday! The Castle of Muskogee has partnered with the Muskogee Cooperative Ministries Food Pantry to serve people in our community suffering from hunger. With so much emphasis on sharing food during this time of year, the holidays are especially difficult for those in our city who are in distress. The demand for food is high and the Pantry needs restocking throughout the winter months. Monday-Thursday, December 15-18, from 6-10pm each night, bring unopened, unexpired, non-perishable food donations inside The Castle’s Great Hall. With our thanks for each item, The Castle will exchange a 2-for-1 ticket to the 20th Annual Oklahoma Renaissance Festival’s Opening Weekend in May, 2015. Each ticket is a $16.95 value. For more information about the food pantry, to make private donations, or to volunteer to assist them, please contact Bud Ranks, Director, at (918)360-3950 or visit them on Facebook.

Open every night, 6-10pm.  A beautiful, glittering display is timed to holiday music as you drive through the park. Don’t miss the ice rink, refreshments, and Gift Shop.
