Arvest Winterfest returns to the BOK Center this winter and runs Nov. 23-Jan. 6. This is the fifth consecutive year for the festival, located outside on Third Street, between Denver and Frisco avenues.
More than 130,000 visitors hit last year’s event, which has grown from its 2008 debut of 35,000 people. The 9,000 square-foot outdoor ice-skating rink is the centerpiece, and features $8 skating (including skate rental), or $5 if you bring your own skates and $5 for children age three and younger.
“Winterfest is a great way for families to enjoy the holiday season together in downtown Tulsa,” said John Bolton, BOK Center general manager, in a media statement.
To celebrate the fifth year, the event will stretch to 45 days.
