The 11th season to feature food trucks, pop-up shopping and live music  

Citizens Bank of Edmond is looking forward to continuing the beloved Heard on Hurd festivities on May 18th with a Heroes theme in honor of Military and First Responder Appreciation Month. Several military branches will be onsite, the On Call Project will be available to share information, the Oklahoma German Shepherd Rescue Veterans Program will be there to bring awareness to their mission, and the 77th Army Band will be headlining.

Additionally, the Community Policing Board is partnering with the Edmond Police Department for a 4th grade Junior Police Chief essay contest. Winners will be recognized at 7pm by Chief JD Younger, who was named Police Chief of the Year, and EPS Teacher of the Year Jennifer Van Huss. To further bring the hero theme to life for both the young and young-at-heart, Captain America and Captain Marvel will be present to amaze us with their superpowers. 

“As an Army veteran myself and with 20% of our team having served in the armed forces, it’s truly an honor to highlight the heroes of our beloved community with this month’s Heard on Hurd event. Serving those who serve us is deeply rooted in who we are and what we stand for,” said Jill Castilla, president and CEO of Citizens Bank of Edmond and Founder of Heard on Hurd. 

Heard on Hurd is the largest and most vibrant monthly food truck and music festival in the nation. This event, which has become a cornerstone of Edmond’s cultural scene, occurs every third Saturday from March through October in downtown Edmond, Oklahoma from 6-10pm.  

Earning its reputation as a must-attend event, Heard on Hurd features an impressive lineup of more than 70 food trucks and pop-up vendors, and showcases the talents of local musicians. The May 18th lineup of bands includes Sky Hemenway at 6pm, Burl at 7:20pm, and 77th Army Band at 8:40pm.  

Citizens Bank of Edmond, the host of Heard on Hurd, has been a steadfast supporter of local, small businesses. With a commitment to fostering economic growth within the community, the bank has played a pivotal role in the event’s success. Heard on Hurd has not only contributed to the revitalization of downtown Edmond but has also generated an astonishing $65 million in economic impact for the city.
