Since its Grand Opening on September 2019, Scissortail Park has become the most popular outdoor venue in Oklahoma City! A unique destination centered on health, wellness, music, environmental education and entertainment. A great space where the nature lovers can explore the magnificent flora along its pathways and enjoy seeing the diverse animals and birds that this green refuge offers to them.

Scissortail Park is the only venue in Oklahoma City that offers to the community, a place to gather and enjoy great music within the urban landscape at no cost.

As we move into the summer season, we are proud to bring to the Okie community several artists who will perform live from the Love’s Travel Stops Stage!

Don´t miss the chance to experience the energy of a crowd at LeAnn Rimes’ concert featuring her new album, god´s work.  And if you are into Latin Rhythms, you can´t miss the Mezclave Latin Jazz &
Salsa performance that combines the Afro-Caribbean harmonies with the Latin Jazz style. Rounding out June, we will have the beautiful sounds of the Oklahoma Philharmonic Society taking the stage with a variety of classics and other orchestral pieces. 

So, bring your lawn chairs, drinks and your loved ones and enjoy a great evening at any of our concerts this Summer!
