OKC Arts Council's Opening Night

at Downtown Oklahoma City

Ring in the new year in style with OKC Arts Council’s Opening Night! The day begins with a festive 5K, and the evening will conclude with a fireworks extravaganza at midnight.

The Civic Center Music Hall’s Hall of Mirrors plays host to the Children’s Area, where kids can enjoy face painting, an interactive art project, a giant game area and lively music performances. Then, head over to Finale Alley for some of the city’s best food trucks.

It all culminates with the fireworks finale at midnight! New Orleans-style band David Bruster and The Walkabouts will take the state at Bicentennial Park at 9 p.m. Other performers throughout the day/night include Jabee, L.T.Z., Moetowne Alex and the Nightview Band, Orquesta d’Calle, OKC Improv, Ali Harter, Michael King, Yung Tray, Susan Herndon, Sativa Prophets, Kinsey Charles and Bricktown Clowns.
