The time has come to bundle up and enjoy the magical spirit of the holidays as Tulsa's favorite winter festival returns to downtown Tulsa. The 15th Annual Arvest Winterfest presented with CommunityCare will kick off another season of holiday fun on November 25th, 2022. Named by People Magazine as the top holiday destination in Oklahoma, Arvest Winterfest presented with CommunityCare will be open from Friday, November 25 through Sunday, January 8.
This year, ice skating returns back outside BOK Center on Third Street. Event organizers have placed a heavy focus on the health and safety of its guests so they will be able to safely experience the magic of the holiday season!
Additionally, Winterfest will feature a multitude of preventative measures as advised by the Tulsa Health Department and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). For more information on what we're doing to keep guests safe, see our COVID safety guidelines tab.
Over the last 15 years, attendance for this event has soared from 35,000 visitors in 2008 to more than 150,000. This year the annual holiday celebration will be open for 45 days, giving as many Tulsans possible a chance to enjoy skating outside BOK Center while skating beneath the beautiful, gleaming holiday lights.
