Bartlesville Sunfest



October 13, 2021

Bartlesville Sunfest is seeking new leadership to continue the annual Bartlesville tradition for future years.
For the past 10 years, the current board members have had the pleasure of serving Bartlesville by creating new Sunfest experiences and a festival the community looks forward to every year. It is now time to pass the reigns to a new group of volunteers and community leaders to bring Sunfest into its next decade.
“I personally could not be more proud of this team, the challenges we overcame, the bonds we made, and the experiences we were able to bring to the community. It’s simply time to pass the reigns,” expresses current President Stephanie Lief
“Sunfest is in good standing as a nonprofit, good standing financially for administrative costs, positive reputation, community supported, and a well-attended event to kick off the summer, our board has just become busy personally and professionally to dedicate the time it needs to continue to succeed and remain the highly respected festival we have created in the last 10 years,” Lief continues.
While most of the current board would like to remain as committee volunteers and guide the new board for this upcoming year, Sunfest has some key positions to fill in order to continue the tradition that need to be in place by December 2021. These positions include President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary.
Sunfest is asking interested groups or individuals who are interested in learning more about how to continue this tradition to email us at for more information. You can also visit is during our new event we put on called BOOfest on October 23, 2021 in person! Sunfest will also hold informational receptions in November and December that you can join as well.
Sunfest is a 100% volunteer, non-profit effort with the mission of providing a family friendly event to promote tourism of Bartlesville and fellowship. The event takes place the weekend after Memorial Day in Sooner Park. Sunfest is hoping to celebrate year 40 with this change in Leadership.
