Shawnee's location highlighted with a pink star on a black silhouette of Oklahoma.

Shawnee is located at the geographical center of Interstate 40, just 30 minutes east of OKC. A unique multicultural gem, in Shawnee the old-west rural and modern urban seem to mingle happily.  


Shawnee is home to events year-round, from the annual International Youth Finals Rodeo and Fireflight Balloon Festival, to this year's Basketweaver's Guild of Oklahoma Annual Meeting.
