Most Popular Holiday Events in OKC: Downtown in December 2023

The most wonderful time of year has arrived!

Downtown in December, presented by Devon Energy, a three-month-long period packed with holiday-themed events is finally here. Head to downtown Oklahoma City this holiday season for outdoor attractions, performing arts, holiday shopping, family activities, toasty treats and refreshments, stunning light displays, and much more!

These holiday-themed events used to be a few dwindling traditions meant to get people of all ages to come downtown during the holidays. However, due to the events and activities growing in demand, in 2002, the Downtown Oklahoma City Partnership took over the holiday events and added them all under one large umbrella, naming it Downtown in December.  

Over the years, Downtown in December was extended from November until January to allow for more time to enjoy the holiday festivities. Successfully continuing to give everyone a reason to keep heading downtown during the holiday season. Head downtown to take in all the wonderful winter happenings during  Downtown in December this year.

Keep scrolling to see what will be included for the 2023 Downtown in December season!

Downtown in December, presented by Devon, is produced by Downtown Oklahoma City Partnership with generous support from Devon Energy, the Downtown Business Improvement District, and other sponsors and partners.
