Blue Dome Arts Festival
2nd & Elgin
The Blue Dome Arts Festival, held within the historic Blue Dome Entertainment District in downtown Tulsa, features over 200 vendors and artists during the annual three-day festival. Come and enjoy browsing through booths filled with handmade crafts, paintings, pottery, carvings, photography, jewelry, home decor and more. Visitors to the Blue Dome Arts Festival are encouraged to chat with local, Oklahoma artists while perusing or purchasing original works by these regional artisans.
A family-friendly festival, the Blue Dome Arts Festival offers a kid-zone that allows the little ones to play and run around. A kid-centered concert will also take place on both Friday and Saturday night at 6pm, featuring a local kindie rock band (kid + indie rock), which will entertain the adults as much as the kids.
Don't forget to make your way to the main entertainment stage during the festival to see concert performances by live musicians. Dance the night away to live tunes and stick around for belly dancers, pottery demonstrations, blacksmith demonstrations over a live forge and beer tastings. Food trucks will surround the stage, providing a food court with every different type of food you could want. So whatever you're looking for, the Blue Dome Arts Festival has something for everyone and is guaranteed fun for all ages.
