About Broken Arrow

Where opportunity lives.

Broken Arrow was formed in 1902 and named for the Muscogee Creek settlement of Native Americans who were forced from their homes during the Trail of Tears and brought to what is today Oklahoma. From statehood forward Broken Arrow would be a driving force in Oklahoma's history. From electing the first female mayor in not only Broken Arrow but Oklahoma in 1931 to hosting the longest-running festival in Oklahoma of Rooster Days and being home to the award-winning downtown area of the Rose District, Broken Arrow is a town blooming with opportunity. 

Today guests and residents can enjoy all sorts of attractions in Broken Arrow from our beautiful parks like the nationally recognized Ray Harral Nature Park, to our amazing shopping and food options, to our hospitable hotels and conference spaces.

Visit Broken Arrow Board

The Visit Broken Arrow Board is made up of nine members, each with a unique perspective and background. The board includes 3 members from the Broken Arrow lodging/tourism industry, 5 members from the Broken Arrow community who represent non-tourism/hospitality businesses (appointed by each council member, subject to confirmation by a majority vote of the entire council membership), and 1 city council member or their appointee.  Together, we work towards promoting our city and enhancing the economic opportunities available to our residents and visitors. 

For more information about the Visit Broken Arrow board, you can read our ordinances or check out our previous meetings.
