Registration


Registration is closed

 Let's Head to the Festial of the Arts when it hopefully isn't too crowded or hot.  I thought this might be a more convenient time to attend the festival for those members who work in the OKC.  That way they won't have to come back into the City on Saturday to attend the event.

 

The festival runs 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free. Pets are not allowed.

  • The Visual Arts includes 144 Plaza Artists from across the nation that exhibit on Hudson Avenue, a large-scale Sculpture Park exhibit and a variety of specialty exhibits throughout the grounds.
  • The Culinary Arts consists of the International Food Row. Each food vendor is partnered with an area non-profit organization.
  • The Performing Arts includes three stages of non-stop performing arts and entertainment representing all genres and world renowned street performers roaming the grounds. This year's Festival of the Arts will also feature Art Moves Pop-Ups, presented by Devon Energy.

A variety of children's activities are featured in the Youth Plaza and around Festival grounds. Arts for children and families include hands-on activities in the Children’s Art Field for just $2. The Young-at-Art Mart is the children-only shopping venue with all artwork affordably priced for $5 or less. Families can also visit Face Painting, Pottery Place and Creation Station for more fun!

Culinary Arts

From appetizers to desserts, the Festival is a celebration of the culinary arts! Thirty-one vendors bring their specialties to the International Food Row and throughout the grounds. Each food vendor is partnered with a local arts organization, so each bite you take supports the arts in central Oklahoma!

Performing Arts

Nearly 300 entertainers of all ages donate their performances on four stages at the Festival. Stages are: The Cafe Stage (located on the Festival Plaza), the Art Moves Stage (located in the Myriad Gardens), the Water Stage (located in the Myriad Gardens) and the Great Lawn Stage (north of the Crystal Bridge in the Myriad Gardens).
