FREE Artwalk and Valentine Events!
Every second Friday of every month, the Plaza District hosts "Live on the Plaza". Live on the Plaza is a monthly art walk event which promotes emerging artistic talent in the Oklahoma City area. Plaza District businesses open their doors with monthly visual artists, performing artists, live musicians and local film screenings. Many special events also take place during LIVE on the Plaza, such as Lyric Theatre performaces, CD releases, private parties, holiday retail events and many more. LIVE on the Plaza provides the community an opportunity to view emerging talent each month, as well as socialize with a diverse mix of artists, professionals, neighborhood residents and families.
