Owasso Celebrates the Arts.
Owasso residents do not lack for arts and entertainment opportunities, both within the city and in the metro Tulsa region. One of the city’s most visible projects is the Timmy and Cindy Project. This public arts initiative places bronze castings of an active young boy and girl on public property throughout the community. There are more than 55 castings throughout the city, funded by individuals, families and organizations in Owasso.
Owasso’s Recreation and Culture Department, which administers the Timmy and Cindy project, also enhances the quality of life of residents through activities, such as Owasso Trail Days, Red, White and Boom, Harvest Festival, Veterans activities, Barktoberfest, and the Christmas Parade.
The new festival park in the Downtown Redbud District includes a large lawn, pavilion and performance stage, and hosts community gatherings, concerts and other events.
Many residents are familiar with the Mary Glass Performing Arts Center (MCPAC) inside Owasso High School. This full-scale 1,500-seat, state-of-the-art theater hosts more than 20,000 hours of events each year, highlighting the public schools’ performing arts groups, plus art shows, community theater productions, dance recitals, lectures and concerts.
Studious sorts should check out the Owasso Historical Museum, which collects, preserves and exhibits items relating to the history of the city and surrounding area.
Clearly, there are plenty of ways to spend leisure time here, but residents also enjoy the benefits of living so close to a major city. The Tulsa region provides opportunities to see national headliner concert acts, touring Broadway productions, and opera, philharmonic and ballet companies resident in Tulsa.
