The Guthrie Green
Tulsa's Brady District unveils a new public park and performance space.
If you’ve passed through the Brady Arts District near downtown Tulsa in recent months, you’ve noticed the dust and construction cones on practically every block. Very soon that will change as projects draw to a close and a vibrant area is revealed. The Guthrie Green kicks off this change with a grand opening weekend, Sept. 7-9. Named in honor of Woody Guthrie in the year of his 100th birthday celebration, the public park boasting an outdoor performance venue, a Lucky’s on the Green restaurant, fountains and other amenities was created to be an ecologically green, low-emissions facility drawing on technologies such as solar panels. Audiences will appreciate that as they enjoy a full schedule of music from the Tulsa Playboys and Salsabor on Sept. 7 to Bob Marley’s band the Wailers, the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra and fireworks from nearby ONEOK Field on Sept. 9.
