On Saturday, Sept. 26, 2015, Oklahoma City’s Plaza District will come alive to celebrate local creativity with the annual Plaza District Festival. Participants in this year’s festival can enjoy live music, artist booths, kids’ art activities and a variety of local concessions. The annual event celebrates the progress of the Plaza District, a district once blighted by urban decay, now boasting a renewed energy embraced by a creative and diverse culture.

Along with Media Sponsor Oklahoma Gazette, The Plaza District Festival is proud to exclusively host Oklahoman artists, performers and vendors, making this festival a truly local event. More than 40 Oklahoma artist booths will line 16th Street, while local musicians and performers will be entertaining at locations spread throughout the district.

The festival is proud to host OECU’s Kidapalooza, a free interactive art experience for children and families. Kidapalooza features a wealth of kids’ educational art activities. Children can create four art projects alongside art instructors from Norman Firehouse Art Center, as well as participate in painting a kids' mural to later be displayed in the Plaza District.  For aspiring performers, the Oklahoma City Philharmonic will present an “Instrument Playground,” where children have the chance to experiment with all the instruments used in the symphony alongside professional musicians. Other activities for children include puppet making, a moon bounce, Metropolitan Library activities, a free photo booth and face painting.

Some of OKC’s finest mobile food trucks will offer local food, complemented by beer and wine. Proceeds from beverage sales benefit the Plaza District Association, to continue to provide these creative events and opportunities.  Plaza District merchants will be open for shopping throughout the event, also hosting an array of art openings, live music and special events.
