Literally raised over the course of a day during the legendary land run of 1889, Oklahoma City has held on to its frontier spirit and continues to be driven by cowboy culture.
Rich with history, Oklahoma City showcases the legacy of the American West in its museums, festivals and expositions. More horse shows are held here annually than in any other American city, as well as many of the country's largest livestock auctions. Local tribal nations participate in the Red Earth Festival which includes powwows, cultural activities, a parade and an art market. The Oklahoma International Finals Rodeo and State Fair Park (updated in 2011) round out the western events.
Other cultural attractions include the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, American Banjo Museum, Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory. Year-round agricultural and livestock events and activities are held at the State Fair Park – as well as the Oklahoma State Fair in September.
Oklahoma's contemporary side is showcased in the Bricktown district. Vacant warehouse buildings and facilities were reclaimed and repurposed during the Metropolitan Area Projects (MAPS) of the early 90s. The result is a vibrant entertainment hub with a distinctive red-brick look and feel. The area is full of restaurants, hotels, nightlife and shopping. Take a river taxi down the Bricktown's canals to explore the area in a unique fashion.
Sports fans have their choice of venues scattered in and around Bricktown, within walking distance of each other. The Oklahoma City Barons (American Hockey League), Thunder (National Basketball Association) and RedHawks (AAA Baseball) make up the city's professional squads. Oklahoma City also has several college sports teams, amateur leagues and a roller derby.
