Free Events for Tulsa Families
Tulsa is full of things to do with your family. And some are made even sweeter because the price is right. While many events, such as movies in the park and concerts at Guthrie Green, are seasonal, there are a few that you can count on to last year round. Here are a few to put on your calendar into perpetuity.
First Fridays at the Tulsa Arts District (Every First Friday)
Head downtown to the Tulsa Arts District from 6-9 p.m. on the first Friday of every month to receive free admission at Tulsa Arts District museums and galleries, extended shopping hours and other family friendly programming. Also, don't forget that Philbrook Museum of Art (2727 S. Rockford Rd.) offers free admission during First Friday, too! Learn more at www.thetulsaartsdistrict.org.
Second Saturdays at Philbrook (Every 2nd Saturday)
Bring out the inner artist in each member of the family. Each second Saturday is designed to explore one "Big Idea." Visit on the second Saturday of each month from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. for family-friendly art activities, scavenger hunts, tours, storytime, and more.
Imagination Days at AHHA (Every 3rd Saturday)
The Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa offers Imagination Days at the Hardesty Arts Center every third Saturday. AHHA invites families to learn about the art of our time and experience it firsthand. Inspired by current AHHA exhibitions, this program fosters the development of lifelong learning skills through gallery explorations, openended discussions, films, demonstrations and individual and collaborative handson art activities.

Funday Sunday at Gilcrease (Every 3rd Sunday)
It's an afternoon of museum fun for the whole family.
