Annual Mayfest Event Beginning in Downtown Tulsa

Organizations are expecting an approximate 40,000 people in downtown Tulsa for this weekend's annual Mayfest.

Mayfest is the annual tribute to the arts that runs Thursday through Sunday on Main Street through 3rd and 6th Streets. Music, entertainment, food and art will be present throughout the festival.

In addition to the outdoor space, the festival also features three indoor galleries.

Organizers of the event say Mayfest was created to promote a broader knowledge and appreciation for visual and musical arts in the city.

Admission to all activities is free and parking is available throughout downtown.

Area residents interested in attending can catch the festival from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. through Saturday and until 6 p.m. on Sunday.
