Midtown Walkabout is back! Downtown Oklahoma City Partnership and the Midtown Association are excited to introduce a modified version of the event that will allow the community to support their favorite Midtown businesses all month long. Midtown Walkabout Month will take place all day on Saturdays in July and will feature summertime promotions and activities for those shopping, eating, and visiting the district as well as for the folks at home.

Midtown merchants will provide specials, discounts, and activities for attendees during their normal operating hours each Saturday in July. Attendees can also enjoy free pop-up programming such as live music, art demonstrations, and photo ops during designated hours of those Saturdays as they explore the district.

Downtown OKC Guides will be surprising a few lucky event attendees with gift cards from Midtown businesses as a part of “Midtown Acts of Kindness,” which will serve as a thank you from Midtown for shopping in the district. Simply being out and about makes guests eligible to win a gift card.

In addition to visiting Midtown in person, there will be ways to experience Midtown from your home. Midtown Walkabout Month will offer virtual events on Saturday, July 11 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturday, July 18 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tune into Midtown’s Instagram Live Stream for virtual giveaways, family-friendly entertainment, and demonstrations and activities by some of your favorite Midtown businesses.

Virtual programming will include:

July 11, 12 p.m. – 1 p.m.
  • Commonplace Books reading
  • Recipe demo with Plant
  • Relax with New Angle Yoga breathing exercises
  • Midtown Mural tour with artists

Finally, during the month of July, CITYBOX will be offering limited-edition boxes filled with goods from Midtown businesses to celebrate Midtown Walkabout Month. CITYBOX launched as businesses were closing due to COVID-19 to bring the experience of local retailers to customers' doorsteps. As cities reopen, CITYBOX continues their efforts to offer curated boxes to help support small businesses in OKC and Tulsa.

Get out and hit the streets or enjoy from the comfort of home, there will be something for everyone during Midtown Walkabout Month this July. For more information, including the full list of promotions and activities, visit
