With the annual Red Earth Festival, Oklahoma City becomes the center of Native American arts and culture at the beginning of every June. This award-winning event brings together tribal artists and dancers from all across North America to represent the richness and diversity of their unique heritages. A grand parade through the streets of downtown OKC kicks the festival off each year, with participants dressed in full regalia distinctive of their tribes. Once the festivities are underway, attendees are welcome to view and purchase the work of some of the nation's most talented artists, with pieces ranging from traditional beadwork and basketry to jewelry, pottery, sculpture, paintings and more. The festival also features performing arts. The Red Earth Fancy Dance Competition showcases the skills of Native American dancers and is one of the most prestigious dance competitions of its kind.
Children aged 18 and under are admitted free of charge to the Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival. The Red Earth Art Center is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 am to 5 pm.
