MisFEST | September 14
MisFEST is a music festival that celebrates the women of the industry. The goal of the festival is to provide women musicians with a platform in the industry. But here is the important part, the message. The message is that it shouldn’t be considered something extra to have a female drummer or DJ or bass player. Women should be considered equal to men in music and this festival shows that it isn’t special to be a woman in the industry, it’s just being another talented person in a band. This event is being held on Guthrie Green with free admission.
Tulsa State Fair | September 26-October 6
The fair is back in town for another couple of weeks of fun and excitement for the entire family. You can visit the fair at Expo Square with admission being $12 for adults and $8 for kids and seniors 62 and older.
