Downtown Tulsa Partnership announces “Downtown Days of Wonder” campaign

TULSA, Okla. — The Downtown Tulsa Partnership announced the Downtown Days of Wonder (DDOW) holiday campaign on Wednesday.

The Downtown Days of Wonder is a collaborative effort to attract Tulsans and visitors to Downtown Tulsa during the 2022 holiday season.

Downtown Tulsa Partnership is installing the traditional snowflakes on many of Downtown’s light poles, and tree lights have gone up in Chapman Green and along Boston Avenue and Main Street from 3rd to 6th streets in the Deco District. An interactive “Singing Tree” experiential lighting display will again be placed in Williams Green where PartnerTulsa will be installing additional lighting displays.

As part of the DDOW campaign, Downtown Tulsa Partnership also is launching a pilot pop-up shop program in downtown just in time for holiday shopping. The DDOW Pop-Up Program focuses on matching local entrepreneurs with available ground-floor retail spaces in the Deco District from approximately Nov. 25-Jan. 15. Entrepreneurs are invited to apply for the Pop-Up Program at DowntownTulsa.com/Pop-Up-Program by 5 p.m., Monday, Nov. 7.

“We are extremely grateful for the Downtown property owners who welcomed this opportunity to help us expand Downtown’s retail presence for the 2022 holiday season by utilizing their spaces,” said Brian Kurtz, President and CEO of Downtown Tulsa Partnership in a press release. “Thanks to their generosity, we are pleased to offer local entrepreneurs affordable, short-term leases and, in some cases, financial assistance to get their shops ready ahead of the busy shopping season. We hope that for many small business owners, this experience will be a jumping-off point to prove their concepts while encouraging more retailers to locate downtown.”
