Winter pageant, meals truck and Sundays with Santa Claus for the 11th annual Arvest Winterfest in downtown Tulsa | leisure
This year, in addition to a 9,000 square meter outdoor ice rink, a new Winterfest Express from the North Pole came in. It’s free and open to all ages. The little train runs through the area in the immediate vicinity of the winter festival and the BOK center.
Get on the train every Saturday before Christmas Eve from 12pm to 3pm. Also new this year are Sundays with Santa, courtesy of Cox. Take a photo with Santa Claus every Sunday in December before Christmas Eve from 2 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Free skating guides help skaters. The helpers are courtesy of Chick-Fil-A Tulsa Hills. A new on-site food truck, The Bandwagon, is available for food and drink every Friday through Sunday.
Free entertainment every Saturday until Christmas Eve in front of the Christmas tree. Joyful music is performed by children from district churches, schools, nonprofits, and choral groups.
Courtesy of Arvest, patrons receive half the price of skating on Monday with the donation of a non-perishable can of groceries, which will benefit the Community Food Bank in Eastern Oklahoma. With the kind permission of ONE Gas, customers receive half-price entry to skate on “Warmth Wednesday” with the donation of a new or carefully used coat, blanket, scarf or pair of gloves for the benefit of Night Light Tulsa.

Admission is $ 15 per person and reservations are required. Tickets (tulsawinterfest.com) for this event will go on sale on Monday, November 12th at 10am.
