Eat Street Food Truck Festival

Eat Street Tulsa is back! After a hugely successful food truck festival last fall, the streets of the Blue Dome gladly welcome these mobile chefs back and open up an extra street for the food frenzy to expand. On Saturday, Nov. 8th, Eat Street Tulsa will return to its home in the Blue Dome District from 11am to 10pm. In addition to the numerous food trucks, Eat Street will feature live music and kids activities all day. Admission is FREE to all ages. There has been an impressive boom in growth of local food trucks, so the event will double in size from last year in order to accommodate about 25 of these vastly differing mobile kitchens. Their varied cuisine will fill the streets of 2nd & Elgin Ave. with tastes and smells from around the globe. So, whether you’re interested in a bit of Mexico, a hot slice of pizza, some smokin’ BBQ, or a something a little more fork-n-knife style, you’ll find what you’re looking for. Even the once-thought “basic” burger, hot dog, and taco guys have expanded and dressed up their menus, dreaming up delicious twists that are unbelievably creative. If you’re looking for something a bit more exotic, you’ll have no problem finding it at Eat Street. Choose from Mediterranean, Greek, Italian, French, Mexican, Vietnamese, and every tempting fusion of those you could dream up. With some brick and mortars turning to the streets, you’ll also find some of your favorite restaurant food that you can now enjoy outside. From chefs with classically trained backgrounds to those who just always know how to make ridiculously good food, you’ll be able to experience it all in one place.  Your best bet… bring friends. Bring a LOT of friends. The perfect way to truly enjoy a foodie festival like this one is to sample as much of it as you can, so invite your favorite people and come up with a strategy to try it all, then just share away. For those over age 21, Arnie’s Bar will be offering outdoor beer sales which happen to pair perfectly with street eats. Eat Street Tulsa is a very family friendly event, so you are encouraged to load up the kids who can also enjoy the tasty fare and live music, as well as some face painting, inflatable play, and an arts station.

Gallery: Day of the Dead

Dia De Los Muertos Arts Festival

Experience the vivid color and flare of the Living Arts Dia De Los Muertos Arts Festival on Saturday, November 1st from 3pm to 11:30pm. The Living Arts is located at 307 East M.B. Brady Street in downtown Tulsa. Tickets to the even may only be purchased at the door for $5 (cash only).

Day of The Dead, or Día de los Muertos, is a celebration of Hispanic heritage which honors loved ones who have passed away. This time-honored tradition has been celebrated by Living Arts for 20 years. An extremely popular event, it captures the attention of thousands each year

There is a lot to see and do at the festival both inside and outside, from fantastic food selections to plenty of music and art. Some of the main attractions are the two stages featuring a variety of Hispanic performers, children’s activities including Sugar Skull decorating and chalk art, the Day of the Dead mural contest and a fun game of Loteria (like bingo). See below for a complete schedule of events.

Living Arts is pleased to announce that actor/comedian/playwright and member of the performance group Culture Clash, Herbert Siguenza will be at Living Arts during a special "Meet the Artist" event on October 30th (7:30pm). He will also be performing during the festival on Stage 2 on at 7:15pm.

With everything to do outside at the festival, be sure not to overlook all the great art inside the living arts building. Inside you will find an assortment of alters honoring those who have passed created by many Tulsa artist and families. Additionally will be an installation by artist Santiago Echeverry, “Orishas”.

The visual component of the piece “Orishas” created Echeverry, was made with a custom code in Processing using a Kinect sensor and a webcam to transform the spatial, color and brightness information of choreographed dancers into a virtual three dimensional mathematical representation of their movements. 28000 images are then imported into a video editing software and treated as a still frame animation. The biggest challenge both in the choreography and the video making process was how to preserve the spirituality of the piece in such a logical setup. The solution was a collective leap of faith, embracing the limitations of the technology and approaching ritual repetitive gestures as the building blocks of a piece that only came to life when I invoked the guidance of the virgins of the Caridad del Cobre and Regla, Ochún and Yemayá, goddesses of all flowing waters. The hours and hours of editing and rendering became a zen-like reflection on my own spirituality and the beauty of layered dance and music.
