Paseo Arts Festival
The annual Paseo Arts Festival in Oklahoma City showcases the original works of over 90 visual artists in the historic Paseo Arts District. It is one of the biggest arts festivals of the year in the state with many different types of art on display and for sale including photography, paintings, wood pieces, jewelry, ceramics and sculpture. The attending artists are mostly from Oklahoma but others travel from all over the country to show their work.
While the Paseo Arts Festival focuses on the visual arts, it does not discount Oklahoma’s musicians. There are two stages showcasing Oklahoma's musical talents. The North Stage features singer/songwriters, bluegrass guitarists, and folk and country music among other genres. The South Stage shines the spotlight on dancers and heavier musical acts as well as some returning arts festival favorites.
The festival is a family-friendly event with activities for everyone. A free children's area will give kids a chance to make art, explore their creativity and have fun while making sculptures, spin art and more. The historic Paseo Arts District is also home to more than a dozen art galleries, several restaurants and multiple specialty shops, all of which will be open during festival hours. There is also a food court with plenty of treats and snacks available for purchase.
