Downtown in December presented by Devon is a collection of holiday events and attractions that take place in downtown Oklahoma City November through January. The event series, created by Downtown Oklahoma City Partnership, provides a central location for the numerous community events put on by nonprofits and businesses for residents and visitors to enjoy throughout the holiday season.
Many of the programs that are highlighted by Downtown in December have become important traditions for the city such as the Devon Ice Rink at the Myriad Gardens, the Oklahoma City Tree Lighting Festival, snow tubing at the ballpark, performances at the Civic Center, OKC Ballet’s The Nutcracker, OKC Philharmonic performances, the Canterbury Voices concert, shopping events like the Holiday Pop-Up Shops, Mistletoe Market, and of course visits with Santa Claus and beautiful light displays throughout downtown.
Downtown in December began in 2001 with a handful of events and has grown and evolved over the years, much like the downtown area, to include over 30 events and attractions. We are excited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Downtown in December in 2021 and look forward to it being bigger and brighter than ever.
