Happy hour at Festival? Wine not!

April 27, 2017

Did you know that Festival of the Arts has two 21+ areas that sell wine and high point beer? Six Day Cellars boasts wonderful décor and a thirty foot outdoor seating area. Overlooking Sculpture Park, Six Day Cellars in located in the center of Bicentennial Park.  Park West, located at the southwest corner of Bicentennial Park, features shaded seating and a beautiful view of Festival grounds.

We spoke with Brittni Shull, a member of the Artisan‘s Steering Committee and dedicated Festival volunteer, about what makes happy hour at Festival such a special event:

“The keys to a fantastic happy hour include patios, delicious food options and friends. Add in artists from all over the country displaying their work as far as the eye can see? Welcome to your dream happy hour courtesy of Festival of the Arts. Seriously, it doesn’t get much better than this…plus it only comes around once per year so #WhyNot go as often as you can?!

Six Day Sellers and Park West are as chic as they sound. If you’re the type who can’t resist group texting at least 15 of your closest friends for happy hour (guilty), Six Day Sellers is for you. This 30 foot outdoor seating area has enough space to sip on wine or craft beer while overlooking the Sculpture Park right in the middle of the Festival action. You’re guaranteed to run into people you know and bask in your shared joy of all things #OKCFA.

Park West is the perfect place to relax and devour your Festival food while enjoying premium wine or beer. Park West overlooks the Street Performer and Art Moves area, meaning you’ll get to see art come alive. Once you find your spot at Park West, it’s tough to leave your little piece of Festival heaven!

I’ve had the privilege of day chairing Park West the past two years and recruiting several friends as volunteers throughout the day. After all of our shifts are complete, there’s nothing like sitting under the stars on the Festival grounds and toasting to a day of work well done!”

We couldn’t agree more with Brittini!  If you find yourself in Downtown OKC this week, make sure to add Festival of the Arts to your list of Happy Hour spots.  Cheers!
