Airport Authority Announces Partnership with Dfest

In an effort to develop the airport’s representation of local art and cultural elements, the airport established a Cultural Advisory Group in 2006. This group formally adopted an Art and Culture Master Plan in 2008 to create a program that reflects the unique characteristics and outstanding talents of the local community.
“As a gateway to our community, the airport plays an important role in establishing the first impression of Tulsa area visitors,” said Alexis Higgins, marketing director with the Tulsa Airport Authority. “By highlighting community events, we are able to provide a glimpse of Tulsa’s diverse and exciting cultural network.”
“Partnering with Dfest is a great opportunity for us to introduce travelers to one of our community’s world-class events,” Higgins said.
Dfest, Oklahoma’s largest music festival and conference, will rock downtown Tulsa’s historic Blue Dome District July 24-25.
Every Thursday until the event, a band will play live in baggage claim A from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Announcements in the terminal will promote Dfest leading up to the event as well as Dfest messaging on the airport’s flight information screens.
In addition to its partnership with the Tulsa Airport Authority, Dfest has also partnered with Gilcrease Museum and the Oklahoma Aquarium. Anyone wearing a Dfest wristband July 24-25 will receive half off admission at Gilcrease and $5 off at the Oklahoma Aquarium.
