“The Best Party in Town,” as it is often called, is a lavish evening to revel in fine dining, lively dancing and plenty of surprises at Cox Business Center in downtown Tulsa. All Carnivale proceeds benefit Mental Health Association Oklahoma's housing programs, among other services.

While Carnivale has always been known as the “Best Party in Town” — it also supports one of the most important causes in town. The fight to end homelessness, especially for our veterans, has become more important than ever. The work of the Association has been at the forefront of this mission for decades, and continues to make strides to provide housing, educate the public and remove the stigmas of mental illness.


The story of this legendary fundraiser began in 1990 when Mrs. Suzanne Warren co-chaired the inaugural Carnivale, then called Le Masquerade. The fundraiser allowed the Mental Health Association Oklahoma to open its first housing program, Walker Hall, in 1991. At that time, proceeds benefitted only 12 tenants. Today, Carnivale benefits more than 1,500 individuals and families living in our 26 apartment complexes in Tulsa and our first apartment complex in Oklahoma City.

We are changing things up this year to make the 2019 Carnivale “Too Big to Ignore”. Join us for the first-ever Theme Reveal Party on August 14. Mark your calendar now and watch your mailbox in July for more details.
