2018 Okie Art Fest
July 7, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
The Okie Art Fest is a local, homegrown, non-profit event in Muskogee, OK acting as a venue for the community to gather together in the heart of our city to support, feature, and network with local artists, entertainers, creators, innovators, and local businesses that have goals of seeing positive, creative, and authentic growth in our community.
Founded, organized, and managed by a small group of young artists and innovators right here in Muskogee, it’s a non-commercial event- no label, no contract, no promoter, no profit. Everything you see and experience at the festival is provided, supplied, and organized by the community, for the community- and all entertainers and performers are passionate, local artists
Although non-commercial, the Okie Art Fest is also about promoting local growth and involvement, which includes supporting our homegrown and locally-owned businesses- and of course any business or group who volunteers and supports the project is more than welcome to attend, participate, and provide information to the public as to who they are and what they are doing to support their community by way of business.
The participants are really the ones responsible for the event- before and during. Everyone attending, volunteering, or performing is encouraged to bring something with them to offer- whether it’s food, gifts, giveaways, games, art performance, or simply their active and passionate participation and positive support. The festival’s activities and projects during the event rely directly on the involvement and participation of the community itself, but generally will include art installations, performance, galleries, and education- artistic structures, food, music, games, and more!
The 2018 Okie Art Fest In Muskogee will begin at 12-noon on Saturday, July 7th at the Hunt’s Green Space in Downtown Muskogee. Fun activities, live music, games, and events for adults, kids, and families to all enjoy together until at least 6pm! It’s open to the public, free, and right here in downtown! At 6pm, the 2018 Okie Art Fest Aftershow featuring some of Muskogee’s own undiscovered musicians, hand-selected by the event, will begin just down the road at The Rail Taproom! (21+) come check it out!
“Please share, support, and volunteer! Progress and positive change in a community only can happen with the participation, collaboration, and passionate actions of all those who are are part of it.”
