Local Edmond Culture Guide

Edmond culture

Culture Past and Present

Edmond culture embraces the past and present. It offers an unalloyed joy for local residents and visitors alike. We’re pleased to provide this guide as a community service.

Reservations can be required. A weather check is a good idea too.

Armstrong Auditorium – Premier Edmond Culture

Armstrong Auditorium is home to the Armstrong International Cultural Foundation. It provides a solid foundation for Edmond culture. And is the premier concert venue and performing arts theater for Edmond and greater Oklahoma City. This venue presents world-class performing arts concerts, symphonies and exhibits.

If you’re looking for class, you’ve found it.

The auditorium’s regal setting must be seen. The hall’s superb acoustics must be heard. Then you’ll know why Armstrong Auditorium is called "a concertgoer’s dream."

You’ll want to start online for event tickets. And continue there for directions. The street address is confusing because it’s on the campus of Armstrong College.

Museum of Art & Design

The Central Museum of Art & Design is hosted on the UCO campus at 100 North University Drive. It’s the oldest staffed museum facility in both the Edmond and campus communities. Exhibits have included photographs, sculptures, paintings and ceramics. Traveling displays and educational programs compliment the local Edmond culture.

Shakespeare in The Park

Oklahoma Shakespeare In The Park is performed by Edmond’s own Professional Classics Theatre Company. The outdoor Theatre Company has been performing in E.C. Hafer Park, at 9th and Bryant, since 1985. Lawn chairs, blankets and picnics are encouraged. It’s Edmond culture under the stars. Call (405) 340-1222 for information. These performances are held during summer months for obvious reasons.

Theatre A La Carte

On a smaller scale, but none less grand, is the Theatre A La Carte. Performances are conducted during summer months in Liberty Park. Previous performances have included mystery, musicals, classics and comedies. A good time is had by all. Liberty Park is east of Boulevard on 1st Street in Edmond. Call 359-2200 for information.

Historical Society

The Edmond Historical Society Museum, at 431 S Boulevard, is housed in an historic armory. The permanent exhibits are arranged in chronological order. Starting with the early days when Edmond was a coal and water stop for the Santa Fe Railroad. Through the Run of 1889. Then the building years in the early 1900’s, up to the present. Special exhibits are included as well. Call (405) 340-0078 for information.

Public Library

Let’s not forget our Edmond Public Library. It’s the busiest library in the Metropolitan Library System. The library was renovated and expanded in 2000 to add 10,000 square feet. And now includes the Fred P. Snyder Quiet Reading Room. A special children’s area. Expanded meeting room space. And much more. Library hours are posted online or call (405) 341-9282. The library is at 10 South Boulevard.
