Love At The Christmas Contest Filming Locations 

Love At The Christmas Contest was mainly filmed in Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A.

Northeast Oklahoma has been a hub for film production since the start of the 20th century, & the 101 Ranch was the site of most of these early productions.

The creation of the movie Tulsa in the late 1940s marked the beginning of contemporary filmmaking in Tulsa and also the surrounding area. The result of motion pictures based on novels published by local author S.E. Hinton in the early 1980s led to a boom in the local film industry in Tulsa.

With many recently released blockbuster motion pictures, Tulsa and its neighboring regions are currently enjoying a resurgence in interest in filmmaking.

Two art museums, ongoing professional opera & ballet companies, and one of the country's highest concentrations of art deco buildings may all be found in Tulsa.
