Over the weekend, the Edmond and surrounding communities came together to help celebrate six seasons of Citizens Bank of Edmond’s Heard on Hurd – a community street festival that has been
showcasing local food, local retail, local music and local people since 2014.
Heard on Hurd welcomes new food and retail vendors to every event. This month festival goers enjoyed shopping from the Pearl Boutique, and enjoyed delectable treats from Daisy-Mae’s, Junction Coffee Tiny House, and Big Biang Theory.
“Heard on Hurd is an amazing event for foodies and food truckers, it amazed us the amount of people that wanted to try our new and unique concept. The crowd was very intrigued to what we are serving. We hope to come back every month!” said Co-Owner of Big Biang Theory, Davy Sangouanesy. “For a first time vendor at Heard on Hurd, we didn’t know what to expect. What we know was, the public was very welcoming to our food concept. Not everyone does hand-pulled noodles, and I don’t think anyone thought of doing it from a food truck. The environment was perfect for us, Heard on Hurd helped us in more ways than we could ever imagine”.
This month’s featured local nonprofit was the Edmond Women’s Club.
“Edmond Women’s Club (EWC) had a blast at Heard on Hurd this past Saturday! EWC is a volunteer organization comprised of community-spirited women who combine their talents to promote the cultural, civic, educational and community efforts of the City of Edmond.” Said Denise Roberts, President of EWC. “Being the featured non-profit organization allowed EWC to meet other community minded women who like us, are eager to use their talents to help local non-profits and promote the City of Edmond. We also had the chance to spread the word about our upcoming Pub Crawl in downtown Edmond on October 25th and our Annual Gala on February 15th”.
There is only one more Heard on Hurd left in the 2019 season. Be sure to visit the intersection of Broadway and Hurd on October 19th for the season finale celebration of all things local.
