Early Fall Events You Should Attend In/Near Tulsa

September 03, 2015


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.

Tulsa Farmer's Market
Cherry Street location; Saturday mornings through October 24

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.

BaseCamp at Turkey Mountain
September 12 - 13, 4 p.m. - 11 p.m.

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. Music starts at 5 p.m. in the Amphitheater and runs until 11 p.m. Cost for tickets is $45-$55, and camping permits include 1 tent and up to 4 people. Location: 6863 S Elwood Ave, Turkey Mountain Wilderness Area.

Art on the Hill Festival
September 18-20

Held on the Rogers State University Claremore Campus, this art festival showcases art from established artists, rising stars and students from northeastern Oklahoma. Stroll the tented venues to view all the art exhibits, see live art demonstrations and listen to music from guest musicians.  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.

September 26, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

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.
