Thousands are expected to attend the first ever   ‘Center of the Universe Arts Festival’ in the Brady District over the weekend. 

Tulsans told FOX23 that they weren’t deterred by the warm weather because they wanted the opportunity to enjoy the live bands.

“I really like that it’s free,” said Holly Cummins of Tulsa. “I think its gives everyone the opportunity to come down and enjoy and they don’t have to pay.”

70 bands will perform throughout the course of the weekend. One of the headline acts, One Republic, features a singer and songwriter from Oklahoma, Ryan Tedder. 

Tedder told FOX23 that he was excited to perform in front of Oklahomans.

“My goal is that everyone would come and be surprised and want to come again,” said Tedder.

Organizers told FOX23 that they anticipate that thousands of people will attend the festival. Various vendors said the hope that the weekend will create big business.

“We hope and we believe that it will be a great money maker,” said Carolyn Ford with D’s BBBQ.

FOX23 will have continued coverage of the festival online and during the weekend

Just a casual observation:-) Over the weekend I viewed a few helicopters hovering over the event. Personally I would think if there were that many people gathered in one location that the locale would be temporarily be classified as restricted air space. Nice to hear that everybody had a good time.
