Tulsa Promotional Products
Located in the middle of Tornado Alley, residents of Tulsa, Oklahoma would certainly benefit from Tulsa promotional products like custom weather instruments to monitor sever weather conditions, but this city is known for a lot more than just frequent twisters. It was once known as the "Oil Capital of the World" after oil was found in Red Fork and Glenpool in Tulsa County in the early 1900s. Tulsa was also once known as the "Terra Cotta City" as many buildings were built in the style of art deco during the oil boom in the 20s. Tulsa is actually considered the center of culture and the arts for Oklahoma, home to world-renowned art museums and opera and ballet companies, in addition to its notable art deco architecture.
Tulsa Embraces the Arts
Tulsa County's main performing companies perform in Tulsa's historic downtown, but one can also find many arts and music venues in the Brady Arts District and the Blue Dome District. Cain's Ballroom, built in 1924, is a noted performance venue in the Brady Arts District. Visitors can of course pick up souvenires when they're there such as apparel and even guitar picks bearing Cain's name and logo. The Blue Dome District is known for the annual music conference and festival, Diversafest, that brings tens of thousands of attendees for a tradeshow, panel and of course performances by over a hundred different bands. And what's a music festival without a music festival tee - the ultimate Tulsa promotional product in the Blue Dome District.
