The Celebration will acknowledge the past twenty-six years of work commissioned by Artistic Director Marcello Angelini. This show will look back on the pieces that made the Tulsa Ballet the highly regarded organization they are today. The show plans to also look towards a bright future by showcasing a hip-hop piece for the first time. In addition to in-person shows, there will be a virtual streaming show. May 13, 14, & 16. Tickets, $25-$85. (918) 749-6030 or tulsaballet.org/the-celebration

Happy Daze

Blanchard is happy to host the twenty-seventh annual May Daze Festival. Stroll through Main Street for near endless entertainment, including a carnival, shopping, live entertainment, and more. You may find it difficult to keep up the pace after filling up on the great food, but the effort will be worth it to get through more than a hundred vendor booths.

(405) 485-8787 or blanchardchamber.com/event/may-daze-festival/

Music On Isle One

As concerts become more common, the chance to see live music is increasing by the day. See Eric Gales at the Belle Isle Restaurant & Brewery this Saturday for some highly skilled guitar work. Regarded as one of the best guitarists out today by names such as Carlos Santana and Dave Navarro, Gales knows how to keep the crowd engaged with his rhythm and riffs. May 15. Tickets, $25-$35.
