Winter Holidays

Make holiday magic in Oklahoma! Gather your family and friends and come together for fun-filled holidays full of festive events in Oklahoma's cities and charming small towns. From Thanksgiving right through Christmas and New Year's Day, you'll find celebrations and activities to make your holidays bright.

Oklahoma's hometowns celebrate the season by lighting up the night with millions of sparkling lights and plenty of holiday cheer to share. Visit Kingfisher, Woodward, Muskogee or Elk City to drive through dazzling Christmas light displays and light shows synchronized to your favorite holiday music. Experience one of the top 10 holiday light displays in the nation when you visit the Chickasha Festival of Light with millions of lights, horse-drawn carriage rides, hot chocolate and more to awaken your family's holiday spirit.

The whole family will be delighted when downtown Oklahoma City is transformed into a polar playground during the annual Downtown in December celebration or visit Tulsa to take part in the Winterfest merriment. Lace up your skates and take a spin at outdoor ice skating rinks or summon your courage and zoom downhill on a snowtube. Enjoy boat tours along the magically-lit Bricktown Canal in OKC as you discover plenty of Christmas lights and decorated trees or browse the holiday market and take a horse-drawn carriage ride through Tulsa's festive celebration while you enjoy live entertainment.

Join the fun at one of Oklahoma's small town holiday festivals, Christmas parades or celebrations where Santa Claus may ride down Main Street on a horse-drawn wagon or glide along on a high-tech Segway. If a lakeside cabin is your idea of the perfect holiday getaway, you'll even find lighted boat parades welcoming the season on some of Oklahoma's lakes. Ring in the New Year with our huge celebrations like Oklahoma City's Opening Night celebration when downtown Oklahoma City is taken over by revelers, live entertainment, fireworks and family activities.
