The exclusive early art buying experience at Festival of the Arts!

Festi-First

  • Did you know dedicated Festi-First buyers have purchased over half a million dollars of art the past five years at Festival? This means Arts Council OKC directly received $130,000 for programs like:

    All Access Arts, bringing arts education and enrichment to our most vulnerable populations of children and senior adults
    Art Moves, bringing art straight to the people of OKC through performances and art experiences every weekday at noon

    Would you join us as we celebrate the arts and continue to fulfill our mission to bring the arts and the community together? The work we do is not complete without your support.

    So, how do you sign up? 

    Simply commit to spending $500 during Festival on art work and enjoy the following benefits:

    • • First pick of this year’s art selection, with no crowds and free parking on the first morning of Festival
