When you move to a new area it may seem strange because you don't know anyone yet. The best way to get over those new-move blues is to meet your neighbors and attend some community events. There are plenty of fun things happening in Tulsa where you can do just that.
The Tulsa Farmers’ Market provides fresh produce and baked goods for sale to the public. Their mission is to make fresh fruits and vegetables available to all Tulsa residents and educate the public about the benefits of eating fresh, locally-grown food. So come out and support local growers while choosing from the freshest in-season produce.
Come for a camp out and music festival at Turkey Mountain. There’ll be food, fun and a music festival with Grazzhopper, Sad Daddy, Eco Culture and Rachel LaVonne.

Held on the Rogers State University Claremore Campus, this art festival showcases art from established artists, rising stars and students from northeastern Oklahoma.

The event is free to attend and proceeds from the festival will help fund scholarships for RSU students as well as area high school students.
Come out to Riverwalk Crossing in Jenks for the Oklahoma’s biggest and “grooviest” animal adoption event. This is a great opportunity to find a furry friend, with all newly adopted pets receiving a free microchip, ID tag, wellness exam and goody bag. Plus, if you adopt, you’ll also receive a free photo with your new pet. The event also features the Million Mutt March against animal cruelty and multiple pet contests. Now in its tenth year, Woofstock is sponsored by Oklahoma Alliance for Animals (OAA), animal welfare organizations and several Green Country shelters.
