The Plaza Festival Prep Guide

In just TWO short days the 20th Annual Plaza Festival will take place and our community will

join together to enjoy live music, great food, visual art, children’s activities, and much more. Is

this your first year attending Plaza Festival?! AWESOME! We are so excited to have you join us

this year to experience the magic of our small but mighty district. However, attending a Festival

can be daunting, but with our Plaza Festival Tips you will be ready to enjoy Festival all day ( and

night) long.

Festival goers start to get cranky and want to get the heck out of dodge whenever they are

hungry, tired, or thirsty. Add in a possible combination of all three and it’s a recipe for burnout

and a quick turnaround away from 16 th Street. Have no fear, we are here to combat all day

Festival woes.

Tip #1: Sleep! Make sure to enjoy deep, sweet slumber the night before Festival. Aim for 7 to 8

hours of rest so that you are bright-eyed and bushy tailed for Festival fun.

Tip #2: Stay hydrated! We suggest bringing a reusable water bottle with at least 1 Ml capacity

and filling up before you go. If you forget your water bottle at home, no problem! Most of the

food trucks will have water bottles and other beverages available for purchase throughout the

day. Want a beverage…of the adult variety? Make sure to check out the Drink Tent throughout

the day for some good, cold beer. Want something a little stronger? Head over to Saints or the

Mule and enjoy their fully stocked bars.

Tip #3: Don’t be hangry! Eat a well-rounded nutritious meal before heading to the Festival to

remain energized and levelheaded all day. Even better idea? Enjoy one of the many food trucks

featured at Festival this year or one of Plaza’s many great restaurants.

While festivals, and the Plaza District, are known for strong fashion choices, an all day outdoor

festival is not the place to pull out your 6 inch platforms and new faux fur coat (unless you are

into that sort of thing). With the unpredictable Oklahoma weather and loads of walking you will

do around all of the Festival, you don’t want to be miserable.

Tip #4: Dress comfortably! Wear clothes and shoes that are comfortable to walk and stand in

for extended periods of time. Dress in layers that are light and easily removeable in case the

weather changes unexpectedly. On that note, protect your beautiful face by wearing some SPF.

Sun damage and sun burns suck, ain’t nobody got time for that. Also, bring an umbrella or rain

jacket just in case. Oklahoma weather, ya’ know? Want to know exactly how much walking you

will be doing? Check out the site map here (HYPERLINK TO SITE MAP or INSERT).

And….for the FINAL and MOST IMPORTANT tip…

Tip #5: Have fun! Plaza Festival only comes around once a year, so enjoy it, try to enjoy

everything Festival has to offer, and come back next year!
