Kaylie's Weekend Guide
Don't let the weekend pass you by. Here's your guide to what to do in Tulsa June 6-9.
This weekend, the annual Saint Francis Tulsa Tough Cycling Festival is taking place in downtown Tulsa.
As the weekend arrives, I always face the same internal battle. I compare what I need to get done versus what I would rather be doing now that I have free time. To appease myself, I make it a routine to get out of my house at least once during my weekly two-day vacay to enjoy some much-needed relaxation and fun. If you find yourself relating to my struggle, no worries, I have you covered. Here are five ideas to fill your upcoming weekend with a little less work and a little more play:
This weekend, the annual Saint Francis Tulsa Tough Cycling Festival is taking place in downtown Tulsa. Bring the whole family to watch the racers compete and experience a magnificent sense of community as neighbors, friends and family all gather together. The festival starts Friday, June 7th and ends June 9th.
One of the best ways to spend a Saturday morning is visiting the Tulsa Farmers’ Market. Help support local businesses by purchasing directly from the farmers. Grab your favorite reusable bag and load up on some veggies this Saturday on Cherry Street!
One of my favorite things to do any weekend is host my own little coffee crawl with some friends or family and visit my favorite coffee shops in the Tulsa area. Go in the morning, afternoon or evening and enjoy some fresh-brewed joe. Here are a few coffee shops you must visit, by whatever beans necessary:
Giving back to the community can be a fantastic way to spend your free time. Whether it is for a few days or a few hours, volunteering can make a huge difference. This weekend, River Park Authority is hosting a post-flood clean up. Grab a buddy and head to River Parks Trail to help clean up debris left from the recent flooding of the Arkansas river. To sign up and help River Parks and your fellow Tulsans, visit the registration website.
My absolute favorite thing to do on weekends is antique shopping. I love visiting the local vintage shops and finding different treasures at each and every one. If you are interested in finding an end-table to repurpose, a funky rocking chair to reupholster, or a beautiful mid-century mirror to hang above your mantle, I suggest visiting some of Tulsa-area’s funkiest and frilliest vintage shops:
Enjoy your weekend and share your experience by visiting any of the suggested places above and tagging TulsaPeople Magazine in all of your pictures and videos online!
