The Oxford Arts Council is a group of volunteers whose purpose is to aid, encourage, advise, and correlate all activities dedicated to the promotion of cultural arts in Oxford, Alabama and neighboring communities. We fulfill our mission through various programs in the community such as the annual Freedom Festival on the 4th of July, the annual Christmas lights contest, providing Oxford City Schools with free performances each year by the Birmingham Children's Theatre, and providing the community with a variety of concerts and performances by talented performers such as the Glenn Miller Band, the Karkowska Sisters, and former American Idol contestants. The Oxford Arts Council Board of Directors, with the generous support of the City of Oxford, is committed to providing affordable and entertaining programs for citizens of all ages.
