Visiting Tulsa at Christmas is one of the best ways to experience all that the city has to offer. From shopping to skating, there are many activities to reign in your holiday spirit.


Winterfest is one of the best reasons to visit Tulsa at Christmas. For over a month, the city’s downtown transforms into a winter wonderland. Take a horse-drawn carriage throughout the lighted streets, ice skate on an open rink, or head over to the BOK center for a holiday market. This year will also feature a train, the Winterfest Express, that children and parents alike will enjoy.

The Nutcracker Ballet

Every year, in Tulsa at Christmas, the city Ballet performs “The Nutcracker.” The company adds their own twists and style to the story, making it unique for the audiences that come to watch. For an elegant evening and a story about the journey of the Nutcracker Prince, take a trip to the Ballet when you visit the city.

Bethlehem Walk

For those who wish to learn more about the origins of this holiday and Jesus’ birth, the Bethlehem Walk is a great experience. This event turns visitors into citizens of Bethlehem in the first century. Along the way, families visit characters like the Wise Men and shepherds. The walk ends at a nativity scene that also features a marketplace and an inn.

A Christmas Carol

What better way to get in the spirit than with a classic tale by Charles Dickens? Throughout December, the American Theater Company performs the musical version of Charles Dickens’ book. Adapted by Robert Odle and Richard Averill, this performance takes place in the Williams Theater at the Performing Arts Center.

Garden of Lights

The Botanic Gardens will be participating in the festivities of Tulsa at Christmas this year. Throughout December, families can take train rides with the Garden Railroad Club, visit Saint Nick, and enjoy the lit-up garden.

Flashlight Candy Cane Hunt

T-Town puts on a candy cane hunt in the dark for ages 3-10 during the holiday season. A daytime version also exists and includes hot cocoa and crafts for the little ones.


This celebration is put on by the city’s German-American Society. The market features traditional German foods and goods, shipped right from their country of origin. Christkindlmarkt lasts for three days and is not a festivity to miss, no matter your heritage. This event is one of many that makes Tulsa at Christmas unique.
