Theatre, music, public art, oh my!
Satisfy your artistic sweet tooth in Enid.
Enid is becoming known more and more for its love of the arts. The Gaslight Theatre is one of Oklahoma’s oldest community theatres, presenting nine shows each season, including the state’s longest running free Shakespeare in the Park each June. Summer Chautauqua held each June brings in scholars who portray historically significant people in our nation’s history. The Enid Symphony Orchestra has been entertaining audiences since 1905, two years before Oklahoma statehood. Its concert hall is designed to put you in the middle of 18th-century Paris. Enid is also known for its collection of home-grown musicians, many of which can be heard throughout the week at area music hotspots. Enid’s two concert venues, Enid Event Center and Chisholm Trail Expo Center, bring in big-name entertainment such as Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker, Ty Herndon, Mercy Me, Casting Crowns, Dwight Yoakam, and Mannheim Steamroller. Plus, Enid has more than 20 public art sculptures throughout the city.
