The Mother of All Road Fests!
In six years, America’s Mother Road, Route 66, will be celebrating its 100th anniversary. And with over sixty million members, the American Automobile Association, better known as AAA, has been serving Americans even longer. Since the beginning, Route 66 and AAA have been trusted traveling companions, and to celebrate their journey, AAA is creating the first ever… AAA Route 66 Road Fest.
Home to the only state capital located on Route 66 and the highway spanning over 400 miles within its borders, Oklahoma is proven to be the perfect place to host this milestone celebration. AAA will present a unique, weeklong event beginning in Tulsa and ending in Oklahoma City in June 2021.
If you are a Route 66 enthusiast, are interested in mapping out the perfect road trip, marveling at vintage cars, discovering new local and regional music, and exploring America’s rich history in an environment fun for the whole family, then plan your next summer vacation around the AAA Route 66 Road Fest.
Included throughout the Road Fest are opportunities to experience all the exceptional towns, attractions, and activities that The Mother Road has to offer.
Road Fest Advocates
"Soon to be deemed the 20th National Historic Trail, Oklahoma is proud of our 420 miles, and largest stretch of America’s Mother Road. As AAA celebrates this national treasure’s approaching centennial, our state and welcoming Oklahomans will share our genuine warmth and hospitality with worldwide travelers seeking a unique and memory enriching road trip. This action-packed, fun and engaging week- long road festival presented by AAA will be as iconic as the road itself. We look forward to seeing you."
Oklahoma Lt. Governor
"With more miles of Route 66 than any other state, Oklahoma is excited to work with AAA Club Alliance as we prepare for the Mother Road’s Centennial birthday. The AAA Route 66 Road Fest will provide a tremendous opportunity for citizens to embrace the Great American Road Trip, while also taking advantage of everything our state has to offer. From unique road stops like the Blue Whale, to iconic dining opportunities like the Rock Café, Oklahomans and roadway travelers across the nation can easily see why Oklahoma is the hub of America, and the hub of Route 66."
AAA Route 66 Revival Fund
