The Blue Dome Arts Festival in downtown Tulsa through May 16, 2010
Hard to say why the local Tulsans tend to support the Blue Dome Arts festival over Mayfest.
I can remember visiting local artists at Mayfest when I moved to Tulsa in the early 80s. Now you’ll find only a few participating. The gentleman from our parish, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, use to sell Greek food at Mayfest until the fees escalated to a point that they could no longer make a profit.
So, now at Tulsa’s Mayfest, you’ll find fair food and out-of-town “international” artists – few locals.
What about the Tulsa artists who started Mayfest? They now participate in the Blue Dome Arts festival.
The Blue Dome Arts Festival in downtown Tulsa through May 16
This year’s festival theme is “Come Explore the Blue Dome,” and with artists, vendors and musicians on every corner, visitors should be able to do just that.
There’s a local and community spirit about Blue Dome, inspiring other festivals to spread, inspiring attendees to create similar celebrations throughout the year in their own neighborhoods.
The BDAF takes place from May 14-16 on Second Street from Detroit to Elgin avenues and north on Elgin to First Street. For more information, visit bluedomeartsfestival.com.
