The Flea Roast and Ox Market is filled with family entertainment for all. Occurring annually in June and hosted by the Irons Area Tourist Association at Skinner Park in Irons, the festival is the group’s main fundraiser.

The four-day festival features amusement rides, live music performances, tournaments, kids games and contests, flea burger food tent, ox market (raffle and souvenir booths), parade and fireworks.
