TULSA, okla. – Tulsa’s 13th Annual Winter Festival is held at the BOK Center for the 2020 holiday season.
Officials said although attending the indoor ice skating festivals may seem counterintuitive as the coronavirus pandemic is still affecting the nation, state and city. In fact, the venue’s ice capacity will be over 8,000 square feet larger than the ice capacity on Third Street. This social distancing benefit is just one of many that the organizers considered essential to protect the winter festival guests. “
Tickets to ice skating and the event will go on sale on November 16 at 10 a.m. CLICK HERE to buy tickets
The 2020 Winter Festival begins on Saturday, November 21st with the opening ceremony “Share the Light” from 5 pm. until 8 p.m.
Guests who want to take part in the Winterfest but are not interested in ice skating can take part free of charge, provided the capacity of the venue allows space. Guests can enjoy the free entertainment every Saturday through Christmas Eve from 4pm to 7pm at the BOK Center
