The 16th Street Plaza District is a neighborhood commercial district boasting Oklahoma City’s creative, local flavor. Located on NW 16th Street between Classen and Penn Ave, the Plaza District is home to galleries, studios, retail shops, restaurants, performance venues and creative services.

The Plaza District Festival is a celebration of all things local. The festival is similar to the monthly LIVE on the Plaza events, but bigger as the street is closed to allow room for vendors. Appreciate and purchase art from over 30 Oklahoma-based artists, enjoy 3 stages packed with an all-Okie lineup of musicians and performers, and don’t miss the dedicated children’s area, available between 11:00 am and 6:00 pm with free, hands-on activities, along Gatewood. Satisfy your cravings with food and beverages from 12 Plaza District restaurants and 10 popular local food trucks.

The Artists

The artist selection has both new and returning Oklahoma artists and includes a variety of media including paintings, photography, woodwork, paper silhouettes, stained glass, sculpture, pottery, children’s books, soap, jewelry, t-shirts, hand-crafted aprons, clothes, purses, and designer dog treats and collars. All works are available for purchase just in time for the holiday season.
