Tulsa's first Open Streets festival is closing streets in southern downtown to vehicles and opening 18 city blocks to walking, playing, socializing and bicycling as we highlight the need for walkable, YP-friendly development in the area. With a slew of activities for all ages, we've got you covered all day:
- Games for kids and adults, including a giant slip-and-slide, interactive maze for all ages, hula hoops, four-square, children's area and big wheel track.
- Sports recreation, including basketball, disc golf, a skate park and field sports.
- Bicycling throughout the route, plus bike rentals, on-street cycletrack south of 15th Street and organized bike trains to the event.
- Art and vendors, including pop-up window shops at 10th & Main, a mini Chalkfest and community art projects.
- Food and drinks, including food trucks, a 1950s cookout, a Tiki bar, puffy tacos and a mobile grocery store.
- Music and entertainment, including local musicians on an outdoor stage and spoken word poets.
- Education, including guided architectural tours, yoga classes, hands-on learning for kids and exhibits exploring pedestrian safety and health & wellness.
- Twenty nonprofit organizations, including Mayfest, INCOG and the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture, are hosting points of activity designed to get people moving or promote their causes.
