Calendar of Events
Most of the Oklahoma Modernism Weekend events will take place at the First Christian Church at NW 36th and Walker in Oklahoma City.
Currently, we are working on the details of the weekend and will post them here as they are finalized. These events are what we have booked so far, but we will be adding more!
Friday, June 9th — First Christian Church
Friday Night Preview: For all of you early bird lovers out there, there will be a Mod Market preview Friday evening from 6:00-8:00, where people can shop before the market opens to the public on Saturday. Also, local vintage clothing retailers, including Bad Granny’s, are working with us to put together a Flashback Fashion Show where models will be wearing fabulous vintage attire from the ‘50s-‘70s. Tickets are $20 each and will be going on sale soon.
Charles Phoenix’s Big Retro Slide Show: Humorist, historian, and all-around good guy, Charles Phoenix, will regale us with stories and observations pertaining to his gloriously funny and beautiful vintage Kodachrome slide collection. Tickets will go on sale soon for the show, so stay tuned.
