Norman is known for its charm, its friendly faces and its football, but those aren’t the only things that make our town special. Check out this list we’ve compiled a few of our favorite things to do in Norman, no matter the season!
Experience a game day
Grab a tailgate tent and your lawn chair for a day full of fun on the campus of the University of Oklahoma. Nearly 100,000 Sooners faithful take part in all the festivities between Campus Corner and Gaylord Memorial Stadium each Saturday home game.
Catch the action from the best seat in the house
No ticket? No problem. Watch the Sooners on one of our state-of-the-art flat screen televisions from the comfort of the COOP Ale House. Between the action, you can try your hand at one of our more than 2,800 electronic and table games, including the all new action-packed roulette table!
Visit a Norman heirloom
See a live showing of a classic holiday play inside the historic Sooner Theatre. The theatre has been a staple of the Norman arts scene for nearly 90 years.
See the Downs Family Christmas Lights
One of the most impressive Christmas light shows in the state, the Downs family has been spreading the holiday cheer for years and years. The impressive display uses more than 18 miles of light strands and 280,000 individual LED lights. Bring canned foods or cash donations as all proceeds go to benefit one of our great partners, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.
Count down the new year
Ring in the new year with Riverwind. Live music and dancing, a champagne toast and a midnight buffet at The River are just a few of the activities you’ll enjoy to celebrate the new year.
Experience another era
Saddle up with the annual Medieval Fair of Norman at Reaves Park. Arts, crafts games and food abound with old world demonstrations of dancing, theater, jousting juggling and more.
