Heard on Hurd was started by Citizens to revitalize downtown Edmond, showcase Oklahoma’s homegrown talent and small businesses and provide sustainable support to the Edmond Public Schools Foundation. In its 10th season, the event has drawn almost 2 million attendees, resulting in more than $60 million in economic impact and a transformed downtown Edmond small business community. Heard on Hurd was named the Urban Land Institute’s “Best Community Building Effort” and is regularly recognized as one of the state’s favorite events. Stepping into the footsteps of the legendary H&8th food truck festival, Heard on Hurd is now both the nation’s largest monthly food truck event as well as America’s most popular monthly original music concert series.
