Mission Statement

To promote and showcase Oklahoma artists and artisans, cincluding the participation of out-of-state artists and artisans; to provide cultural awareness and opportunities; and to present and promote the performing arts.

Arts Festival Oklahoma is offered through the Oklahoma Cit Community College Office of Cultural Programs. Through cooperation with partners and stakeholders Cultural Programs enriches the lives of students, staff, and community members by creating and sustaining a thriving arts environment that will allow citizens to become educated participants in a global society.

Description

Every Labor Day weekend, over 25,000 people travel to Oklahoma City Community College to view and purchase original artwork and craft pieces as part of the annual Arts Festival Oklahoma. One of the top arts festivals in the southwest, AFO is a juried art show featuring over 150 juried artists housed in block-long tents, surrounded by ongoing performing arts and concessions. Unique among festival offerings are a Children's Creative Center, free headline entertainment on Saturday and Sunday evening, and fireworks.

Most festival operations are supported by over 350 volunteers who perform a variety of services. They may help to sell drink consession and souvenirs, provide information to patrons, deliver ice to food vendors, answer questions at the call center, provide support services to other volunteers and artists, wear the festival's mascot costume, drive courtesy shuttles, or serve as children's tent make-and-take crafts facilitators. Labor Day weekend at Arts Festival Oklahoma is a weekend of Fun, Food and Art!
