This is the third year for the day long celebration, although it looks a little different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The city announced the theme for the event is "Rise through Resilience" with virtual social distanced activities spread throughout the city. CLICK HERE for more on the planned events.

"Park"ing in downtown Tulsa
Several on-street parking spots will be converted to urban parklets between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to celebrate Park(ing) Day 2020. Organizations and businesses signed up to participate and will transform ordinary parking spaces into safe, socially distanced pop-up parks and public spaces.

You can stop by each of the pop-up installations located on Boston Avenue between 3rd and 7th Streets and vote for your favorite one. The City of Tulsa’s recent adoption of the Parklet Permit Program will allow many of these to become permanent parts of the neighborhood. Additional details can be found at .

918 Art Drop

Hosted by the 918 Maker's Collective local artists are doing a scavenger hunt of their works. Throughout the day, they will "hide" art work all over the 918 area code and post clues on social media to help find their work. Any found artwork will belong to whoever finds it. Organizers say more than 100 artists signed up for this year's event. For more information visit the Event page on Facebook.
