“Having somewhere to go is home. Having someone to love is family. Having both is a blessing.” – Unknown
Thanksgiving is a time to come together and celebrate one another. For some, it’s spent preparing a feast, traveling to visit loved ones or getting out to explore all their city has to offer. For us, it’s all three. Celebrate Thanksgiving this year in true 21c style indulging in flavors of the season, relaxing in comfort and exploring Oklahoma City, a city we are thankful to call home. Thanksgiving has never been so simple – or indulgent.
Looking for a bold eclectic twist on traditional classics? You’ve come to the right place. Step away from the stove this year and let Mary Eddy’s Kitchen x Lounge set the table for this year’s feast with a four-course prix fixe menu, centered around Nashville Hot Turkey.

You didn’t travel this far to sleep on the couch or be jammed packed inside one house. Treat yourself (or your family) to an overnight stay with the Purple Penguins. You’ll be thankful.

This year is the year to get out during the holiday. Be a hometown tourist or hang with the locals, with our top five picks of things to do in Oklahoma City Thanksgiving week.
- Devon Ice Rink – Nothing gets us more in the holiday spirit than ice skating. Bundle up and head towards Myriad Botanical Gardens. Each year it transforms its seasonal plaza into an ice rink, offering 5,500 square feet of real ice. And as an added bonus, it’s open Thanksgiving Day from 3-9pm. Perfect for working off that extra turkey leg you had.
- Yoga with Art – Stay grounded over the holiday by working through a variety of yoga poses with This Land Yoga in 21c’s contemporary art-filled spaces on Saturday mornings. Did we mention there are mimosas afterwards?
- OKC Zoo – We’d be lion-ing if we said we didn’t love animals. From adorable tiger cubs to flirtatious flamingos, there’s a friendly face for everyone. Pro Tip: The zoo is offering free admission to all the day prior to Thanksgiving.
- Not for Sale: Graffiti Culture in Oklahoma – The graffiti movement may have begun in the early 1970s in Philadelphia, but today it’s making waves right here in OKC. In Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center current show, 10 Oklahoma-born artists who have been an integral part of the graffiti scene are featured, with their artwork directly painted on the walls of the gallery.
- Oklahoma City Thunder – We couldn’t be more thankful for two home basketball games over the holiday week. Whether you’re a live-long fan, or simply looking for a fun sporting event for the whole family, the boys in Thunder Blue will not disappoint.
And for a little extra holiday cheer– Film Row, the district we’re proud to call home, will turn on their holiday lights display on Friday, November 24th.
