Rogers County Cherokee Association Hosts Wild Onion Dinner in Claremore


2nd Annual Rogers County Cherokee Association (RCCA) Wild Onion Dinner

This Saturday, April 21, doors open at noon at the Rogers County Building on the Claremore Expo grounds for the 2nd Annual Rogers County Cherokee Association (RCCA) Wild Onion Dinner.  RCCA plans to serve food until 3pm.

RCCA is hosting the wild onion dinner to raise operating dollars for the local 501c3 non-profit organization’s monthly cultural events which are typically provided at no cost to attendees.  

RCCA built and maintains a community building they built on land they purchased which requires upkeep and monthly utilities. RCCA is operated and run by local volunteers, fundraisers, and donations.

The dinner menu includes wild onions and eggs, brown beans, frybread, hominy, and traditional Cherokee grape dumplings. A dinner plate is $10.00.

The first dinner was an overwhelming success so the dinner has been moved to the Rogers County Building to accommodate more people and more food. The Rogers County Building is at 416 South Brady in Claremore.  This is the white metal building across from El Azteca facing Highway 20 near the Claremore Indian Hospital on the Claremore Expo grounds.

RCCA will host a silent auction in conjunction with the dinner, so plan to donate an item or purchase several items.

RCCA President Dr. Cara Cowan Watts is the chairwoman of the event. To volunteer or donate, email Cara at
