Festival of the Arts
Known as Oklahoma City's annual "rite of spring," the Festival of the Arts is a six-day community celebration of the visual, culinary and performing arts. Come to the Festival of the Arts to view the creative works of over 140 artists from across the nation and add personal touches to the collaborative Creation Station sculpture.
The Festival of the Arts is also famous for its International Food Row. Guests can choose between sampling delicious ethnic food or staying with tried-and-true festival favorites after browsing through the unique artwork. From scrumptious Indian tacos to heaping platters of Brazilian food and Mexican cuisine, the festival's food row will leave everyone with a satisfied appetite.
Enjoy four stages of nonstop performing arts and entertainment, as well as street performers roaming the grounds. Nearly 300 entertainers of all ages will donate their performances at the Festival of the Arts. In addition, kids can complete hands-on crafts like foam sail boats, pipe cleaner jewelry and bug eye masks in the Children's Art Field area for $3. The Young-at-Art Mart returns as the children-only shopping venue with all artwork affordably priced for $5 or less. Families can also enjoy face painting and visit Pottery Place and Sculpture Park for more fun.
