Oklahoma Folklife Festival
October 15, 2022, 10 a.m.–3 p.m.
The Oklahoma History Center (OHC) is pleased to invite the public to attend the 2022 Oklahoma Folklife Festival on Saturday, October 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event is free and open to the public and will offer a wide range of entertainment, crafts, exhibitions and food. The festival will be held predominantly outdoors on the OHC campus located at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive in Oklahoma City. For additional information, please call 405-522-0765.
This community-wide event will celebrate and recognize what the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress has called “the everyday and intimate creativity that all of us share and pass on to the next generation.” The “creativity” mentioned will come in the form of dancing, singing, crafts, food, and much more. An excellent example of the diverse offerings at the festival will be the various dance troupes demonstrating their talents to all attendees. Included in these demonstrations will be Mexican, Venezuelan, and South and Southeast Asian dance performers. A variety of food vendors, musical performers and educational resources will be present to offer their time and talents. There will also be several craft opportunities for attendees of all ages.
The Oklahoma Folklife Festival is an education-focused event sponsored in part by Inasmuch Foundation.
