What began as a passion project to save an increasingly dilapidated OKC community has grown into a celebration of the best in local business, music, art, food and more, as its neighborhood has become one of the hottest destinations in town. The 21st Plaza District Festival is on Sept. 28, featuring new musical and visual artists, activities for children, food vendors and retailers – and attendance remains free.

The festival “is a celebration of the revitalization of the plaza district and a collaboration of all things local,” says Selena Skorman, executive director of the Plaza District. “We are lucky to be considered … a jumping-off point for young artists and musicians.” This year’s lineup includes 35 visual artists and “so many great musicians,” Skorman says.

Whether you are wanting to sample the best of local talent in OKC, or you just want a fun and enriching way to spend a Saturday, Skorman said there is something for everyone at the festival. Check out plazadistrict.org for details.
