Calendar of Special Events

The City of Tulsa maintains a Calendar of Special Events for community events scheduled to occur on public property. Typically, these events are community celebrations and festivals, parades and athletic or recreational activities that are open to the public and require a road closure. The information used to generate this calendar is primarily obtained from details included on special event permit applications that have been submitted to the City of Tulsa.

Please note that information is added to the calendar from special event permit applications as they are received and reviewed by the City of Tulsa. Because the application submission time requirement can be as short as ninety days prior to an event, many special events are not listed until the month in which they are scheduled to occur. The listed events are not approved until a permit has been issued. 

Events and recreational programs scheduled within city parks and at recreation centers receive permits directly through the City of Tulsa Park and Recreation Department and may not appear on this calendar. Events at the BOK Center, ONEOK Field, HA Chapman Stadium, Reynolds Center, Tulsa Performing Arts Center, Cherry Street Farmer's Market and other similar venues may not appear on this calendar, including neighborhood block parties. Review the Road Closure Map for event news releases.

The Calendar is not intended to be used as a promotional vehicle for private events or for events taking place on private or commercial property even though the event may be sponsored by a non-profit organization and open to the public. The City of Tulsa reserves the right to determine the events and content included in the Calendar of Events.

Thank you for using the City of Tulsa Calendar of Special Events. We hope you enjoy the excitement, enthusiasm and diversity of our city!
