Tuesday, April 23-Sunday, April 28
Downtown Oklahoma City completely gives itself over to the arts one week out of the year, and that time is Festival of the Arts. The spring event is back beginning Tuesday, April 23, and highlights the arts in three areas – visual arts, culinary arts and performing arts – with special art exhibitions, street performers, live entertainment, wine area and specialty food vendors on International Food Row. Children get into the fun, too, with special festivities such as face painting, pottery making and more. See all the works at the artist market including pieces submitted for the festival juried art show in various categories (jewelry, wood, leather, glass, clay, photography, etc.). See it all at the Festival Plaza, Myriad Botanical Gardens and on Hudson Avenue – roughly the vicinity of Walker to Robinson avenues and Reno to Sheridan avenues. Hours are 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday, April 28. No pets will be allowed. Admission is free. For all the details, go to www.artscouncilokc.com.
