Oh, what fun you'll have in Oklahoma City this winter. From holiday happenings to indoor retreats perfect for cold weather days, here are the can't-miss attractions and events you can experience in OKC through Christmas and the start of 2020!
Downtown in December
For all things fun and festive, head to downtown Oklahoma City for Downtown in December (...and January), a winter celebration boasting events and activities that will put you in a jollier mood than Santa himself. With a hot chocolate from Katiebug's in hand, seeing the lights along Automobile Alley and the Bricktown Canal is the perfect way to end a day of ice skating, snow tubing and shopping.
Christmas in OKC
Downtown Oklahoma City isn't the only area that's hustling and bustling this holiday season. Enjoy Christmas celebrations of all kinds throughout OKC, including must-see shows, meet-and-greets with Santa and Wild West winter wonderlands. Take a magical ride on the Polar Express at the Oklahoma Railway Museum, or pair thrills for the whole family with one million dazzling lights at Frontier City's Holiday in the Park.
Black Friday kicks off the biggest shopping season of the year, and from local shops to stores brimming with cowboy couture, there are plenty of places in Oklahoma City to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. For authentic finds, check out the Holiday Pop-Up Shops in Midtown or shop through each OKC district. We have most major retailers at each of our three shopping malls, too.
NYE in OKC
New Year's Eve is the perfect night to check out our nightlife scene, but there are also events that bring the feel of the classic Times Square celebration to OKC. For over 30 years, Opening Night has been the premier way to celebrate the New Year in downtown Oklahoma City with entertainment for all ages, fireworks and even a 5K. Wanting to ring in 2020 a little earlier than midnight? Stop by the OKC Zoo for its Noon Year's Party, a wildly fun take on the traditional NYE excitement.
