Paseo Arts District
What started out as a shopping district in 1929, gradually evolved to become a haven for black jazz musicians, students and small businesses in the 1950s. The end of World War II brought with it the counter-culture which determined the atmosphere of the Paseo. But it was only in the 1970s that it became one of the country's finest art districts. Hosting food, art and music festivals all year round, this place has still preserved its old town Spanish feel with narrow streets and clay roof houses.
Please watch out for the spoiled food. Some vendors at the Arts Festival are not properly cooking the food or not cleaning the raw food and condiments served. I think the Indian Tacos had bad lettice or tomatoes.
this festival progresses every year. The next few years should be amazing to see. The paseo district has come full bloom from its horrible gentrification and white flight days. Still struggling, but budding; artists and wonderful eateries line this lively street with plenty of outdoor seating everywhere. Make this place a sure destination on any trip. The festival is only one weekend out of the year. But this street has events every day and every night of the week. On mondays the only spot open is a small cafe called sauced. I own it, come by and sit on the patio. Have a good trip

I was in OKC last May and went to the arts festival at the Paseo. It was absolutely great. The artists appeared to be all local. I love that they have taken an old district and put it to good use. Thumbs up to OKC artists!
