Blue Ox Dining Group has partnered with Quickie-Mart skate shop and ROCK 103 to host a two day street competition, Oct. 11-12 in Downtown Tulsa.

This event will benefit Rise & Shine, a local neighborhood improvement project.  The event, located between Frankfort and Greenwood on 3rd St. at the south east end of The Blue Dome District, will kick off at 6pm on Friday night and will feature a skate demonstration, free skate lessons, and a midnight ride. Area DJs will perform in the skate area throughout the evening.  The battle of the bands and street art events also begin on Friday night with round one of the ten-team contest and a live street art demonstration by Tulsa’s best artists.

The event will also feature vendor booths and local food trucks. The skate and street art competitions will begin at 10am on Saturday morning and will continue throughout the day. The Battle of the Bands Finals will be Saturday night on the ROCK 103 Stage and will be followed by a performance from the popular local band, SocietySociety.  

The event is the evolution of the former Joe Momma’s Back to School Battle of the Bands, an annual event hosted by Joe Momma’s, a local pizza establishment and first restaurant concept by Blake Ewing, founder of The Blue Ox Dining Group.  “We really wanted to take it up a notch this year and felt like street art, skating and fixed gear bike riding were all complimentary to our battle of the bands. We called the guys at Quickie Mart and they were enthusiastic about partnering. This will be a great event for a worthy cause.” said Ewing.  

Proceeds will help fund Blue Ox dining’s community building effort, Rise & Shine, which held its first neighborhood cleanup effort in The Pearl District in August.  For more information about the event schedule or about participating in the event, either as a sponsor, street artist, skateboarder or cyclist visit scissortailsc.com or Scissortail Street Competition on Facebook.  If you have questions, contact event coordinator, Megan Wilson at 918.949.3860.  Quickie Mart is a local skate shop located at 53rd and Peoria and the Blue OxDining Group is a Tulsa based restaurant and entertainment group, with several concepts located in the downtown area.
