LEAF Global Arts is hosting its inaugural Holiday Pop-up Bazaar! Bring your family and shop for your loved ones while listening to music by various LEAF Schools & Streets Teaching Artists and other local musicians. A free holiday craft-making station will be set up, perfect for kids and creatives of any age. Come shop from your favorite LEAF merchants from 2pm-8pm!

This event takes place during First Friday on The Block, a monthly celebration that uplifts local businesses and showcases the art and culture of the historic Block, one of the largest Black Wall St. districts before urban renewal.

Together, let’s celebrate the essence of our community this holiday season.

Music throughout, with featured the band Ovayda from 5:30pm-7:30pm. Ovadya is neo-psychedelic, world-influenced original music. Ovadaya’s show is powerful, transcendent, and will take you on a journey.

Suggested donation $5 at the door.

Interested in being a vendor? Fill out the form at and we will get back to you! Each vendor will need to provide a 6-foot or smaller table to vend and a payment option and cash bank for your customers.

Deck yourselves out in fun holiday attire. It’s a celebration!
