The RedBud Awards Ceremony is an annual event held by the Oklahoma Travel Industry Association recognizing Oklahoma tourism attractions, destination marketing organizations and journalists for their outstanding efforts to serve and promote Oklahoma's tourism industry. The 2021 RedBud Awards is brought to you by Edmond Electric.

The awards represent the highest honor given in the Oklahoma tourism industry. The event is hosted by Visit Edmond and the Edmond Conference Center. The luncheon will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn/Edmond Conference Center.
