Downtown in December

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 2002 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 celebrating the season.

Downtown in December celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2021. We are honored to be a part of downtown Oklahoma City’s rich history of activating the heart of the city and bringing people together during the holiday season.
