Caroling in the Caverns

Caroling in the Caverns

Christmas caroling will return to Blanchard Springs Caverns this holiday season for the first time since 2019, but it won't be deep underground in the Cathedral Room, where it was held from 2001 through 2019. Instead, Caroling in the Caverns will held be in an aboveground auditorium next to the visitors center.

That was a compromise reached with the Osage Nation, which considers Blanchard Springs Caverns a sacred site, said U.S. Sen. John Boozman of Rogers. "They felt strongly that the caroling was inappropriate," he said of the underground performances.

Allowing tourists inside the caverns is "like building a waterslide in a church," according to the Osage.
