You’ve heard us talk about the history and heritage of OKC. Why not explore some of our rich heritage and maybe start a new tradition with your own family this holiday season? There’s no better place to get in the holiday spirit than in OKC.
Explore Oklahoma’s Native American culture at the Red Earth Treefest. Your family is sure to be amazed at 18 Christmas trees adorned with handmade ornaments from Oklahoma tribes including the Cheyenne and Arapaho, Chickasaw, Citizen Potawatomi, Comanche and Osage nations each showcasing the distinctive and diverse cultures of the Native nations and tribes that call our great state home. Or celebrate an old-fashioned Christmas tradition in style with a visit to Fort Reno’s Christmas Guns event. Traced back to German immigrants, legend has it that the loud noise produced by the firearms will dispel evil spirits before the upcoming holiday.
If you’re having a hard time finding your Christmas cheer, kick your inner elf into overdrive with festive lights around Oklahoma City and sounds of the season at the Lyric Theater and Civic Center Music Hall. For sports enthusiasts, Oklahoma City has plenty to offer this holiday season. The Oklahoma City Thunder plays at the Chesapeake Energy Arena on Christmas day and New Year’s Eve. The OKC Blue also takes the court tonight as well as twice next week at the Cox Convention Center.
