2nd Friday Norman Art Walk is a free celebration of arts & creativity held monthly from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Walker Arts District of Downtown Norman.

2nd Friday Norman Art Walk is made possible by the Norman Arts Council and a collection of sponsors, including Republic Bank & Trust, Fowler Automotive, The City of Norman, Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts and Kirkpatrick Foundation.


A wide variety of shops, restaurants, offices, bars, concert venues and more team up to produce dozens of free, fun arts events for the Norman community to enjoy each month and celebrate the creativity within it.


There are free concerts each month held in conjunction with the 2nd Friday Norman Art Walk with everything from folk to jazz to indie to hip-hop in every sort of setting you could imagine. Preview this month's shows.

We ask that to be listed, events be free and open to the public … and preferably awesome (we’re sure it’s awesome!).

For Food Trucks:

Tacos, pizza, salads, drinks, sandwiches … if you serve it out of a truck, our patrons will (probably) eat it. We love having food trucks at 2nd Friday Norman Art Walks and have just recently formalized the 2nd Friday Food Truck Park on Peters between Main & Gray. Contact Lacy Jo Burgess with Norman Convention & Visitors Bureau (NCVB) at Lacy@VisitNorman.com. She’ll help coordinate a spot for you, when available. Just remember to be permitted through the City of Norman!

For Outside Vendors:

If you are selling shirts, prints, baked goods, books and just about anything else you can name or think of, you’ll need to fill out a Vendor Application, which you can find here. There’s a $20 fee to setup shop and sell on the street during a 2nd Friday.

For Artists, Musicians, Performers OR MAKERS:

To showcase your work or perform at a 2nd Friday, please contact participating organizations, businesses and venues directly. Norman Arts Council does not handle booking and placement of artists, outside of MAINSITE Contemporary Art. If you want to setup on the street to display your work with the intention of selling anything, you’ll need to fill out a Vendors Application.

If you aren’t sure who to reach out to, come to a 2nd Friday Norman Art Walk and see which place would suit your stuff best. Then contact them after!



2nd Friday Norman Art Walk wouldn't be possible without the support of these wonderful business and organizations.
