BOOtanical Bands & Blooms: Autumn Shade
- This event has passed.
October 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Autumn Shade consists of Jes Leneè, Sharla Ember, Nathan Wright, and Jordan Hehl. Their bohemian folk music is an intertwining of melodic harmonies, strings, and a bit of haunting fairy magic. They have released 3 albums (with Strange Attractors Audio House out of Portland and More Than Folk records out of Paris) and have another in the works. Jes has toured throughout Europe and opened for Smogs Bill Callahan while Jordan, Nathan, and Sharla have been staples in the Tulsa music scene for over a decade.
Food and drinks will be available for sale at 5:30 pm including beer, wine, cocktails, non-alcoholic drinks, hot dogs and more. Our Garden of Eatin’ will be serving food along with V’Fresco Food Truck. Local ice cream cart Cherry & Bark will also be on hand.
Bands & Blooms is supported in part by Oklahoma Arts Council and The National Endowment for the Arts.
In addition to live music, food and drink, Thursday nights in October will include optional family-friendly BOO-tanical Trick-or-Treating trail with eight fun, educational nature-themed stations including “Maggot Painting” or “Termite Races” offered in partnership with OSU Entomology Department.

Cost for participating in the BOO-tanical trick-or-treating: $10/child in advance, $12 day-of, in addition to a regular admission.
