Taste the world with a trip to Tulsa, where no less than four ethnic festivals bring a mosaic of cultural flavors, sights and sounds in the same weekend. Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church hosts one of T-Town’s oldest cultural celebrations on its grounds. Tulsa Greek Holiday Festival has all the baklava, kebobs, dancing, music and ouzo you can want (www.tulsagreekfestival.com) Sept. 15-17. Hispanic Festival 2011 lights up Chapman Centennial Green Walk Park in downtown Tulsa with lively music and more Sept. 16-18 (www.tulsahispanicchamber.com). Down by the river at River West Festival Park, the Oklahoma Scottish Festival holds its own with a variety of activities, foods and games, Sept. 16-18 (www.tulsascottishgames.org). Temple Israel near Utica Square welcomes all to ShalomFest 2011 to celebrate Jewish culture and art Sept. 18 (www.templetulsa.com/shalomfest). Drive a little further to Bartlesville and you’ll find intertribal powwow culture alive at Oklahoma Indian Summer Festival (okindiansummer.org).
