This Weekend in Tulsa: August 24-26

This picture was taken during our week-long celebration of Earth Day last April when our third grade and preschool students teamed up to plant in our urban garden. I just love how the buildings of downtown Tulsa look against the bright blue sky. Furthermore, this picture reminds me of how much we love being the oldest school in Tulsa and how much we love being downtown. That's why I compile these lists of things for you to do in downtown and throughout Tulsa with your family each weekend so that you can experience why we love Tulsa, too! 

Friday, August 24

It looks like it would be a lovely night at the Philbrook Museum! Start out your evening with Burger Night or bring a picnic and enjoy this week's film on the lawn

If you're not interested in spending your evening outside, we recommend going to the Church of the Madalene for their Healing Prayer Night for praise and worship, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Sacrament of Reconciliation, and Healing Prayer Teams.

Saturday, August 25

If there's nothing else you do this weekend besides going to Mass, we highly recommend checking out the Maker Faire Tulsa. It's a family-friendly event that celebrates and explores technology, education, science, arts, crafts, engineering, food, sustainability, and making of all kinds.

Get your kiddo to make lunch at William Sonoma's Junior Chef Pizza Party that benefits No Kid Hungry. 

For our band students, choir members, or musically interested students, head to Magic City Books for their free event, Mochas with Musicologist to talk all things music!

Check out this traveling insect zoo at the Bugging Out event hosted by the Ray Harral Nature Center. 

Stop by West Elm for a Pop-Up Shop where Sweet Devotion Cakery will be selling beautifully decorated (and delicious) cookies.

Wrap up your day by going to Mass at the cathedral at 5:00 PM, and then heading to dinner at a downtown restaurant! We suggest Andolini's Sliced for pizza and gelato, Elote for Mexican food (don't leave without getting a churro... or two), or Blue Smoke BBQ, an award-winning barbeque team that will be at Welltown Brewery. 

Sunday, August 26

Start off your Sunday morning with Mass at the cathedral at 8:00 or 10:00 AM (12:00 or 5:00 PM if you attend in the afternoon/evening). Following the 10:00 and Noon masses, don't forget to register for this year's Family Faith Formation!

After Mass, head to the Burn Co. BBQ Brunch!

Fill your afternoon with various events hosted by multiple museums and galleries. Such as Studio Sundays at Ahha (for families with kids of all ages), Open Studio Hours at Ahha (for families with students aged 13 and older), Drop-In Studio at Gilcrease Museum, and help or observe the Red Dirt Rug Sweep and artist talk at Philbrook Downtown. For a more relaxed experience, just spend the afternoon walking around the Philbrook Museum and gardens, Gilcrease Museum, or Tulsa Botanic Garden

You could also spend your afternoon listening to Jazz and Blues music at the Feel Good Festival at Guthrie Green. Take a picnic dinner, listen to some feel-good music, and let the kiddos run around on the lawn.

For dinner, we recommend heading to Fuel 66 for a Taco Throwdown, a competition between five wonderful taco trucks, or go to Coney I-Lander for $1 Coneys!

We hope that you have a wonderful weekend! Don't forget to tag your pictures from the weekend with #welovehfcs!
