Citizens Bank of Edmond Celebrates Back to School on August 19th at Heard on Hurd
The nation’s largest monthly food truck event features three dozen food trucks, original local music, and shopping
Citizens Bank of Edmond’s Heard on Hurd will return to downtown Edmond on Saturday, August 19. The monthly food truck event and concert series will be on Broadway, between 1st and Hurd. Attendees will enjoy original Oklahoma music as well as a variety of food trucks and pop-up shops from 6-10 p.m.
“August’s Heard on Hurd is one of the best months to attend because the community is back from summer travel and school will have just kicked off,” said Jill Castilla, president and CEO of Citizens Bank of Edmond and founder of Heard on Hurd. “The streets are always filled with friends and neighbors supporting small businesses and enjoying local music. It’s hard to pick favorites, but August is always a great month to be in downtown Edmond and enjoy Heard on Hurd.”
Taking the Heard on Hurd stage this month will be:
- Carter Sampson at 6:00PM, featuring songs from the award-winning artist’s new album Gold (which spent months on the Americana Music Charts);
- Ross Clayton at 7:20PM, McLoud-based singer/songwriter as heard/seen on NBC’s The Voice (Season 23); performing original country music, and
- KALO at 8:40PM, Oklahoma-based guitarist/vocalist brings “groovesome rhythm and blues meets fiery rock ‘n’ roll” with her fiery electric show of original songs.
Heard on Hurd hosts more than three dozen food trucks every month ranging from BBQ and samosas to pizza and tacos.
“We have been blessed to be a part of Heard on Hurd for the past five seasons,” said Tim Wheeler, owner of Dos Gringos. “Having the opportunity to work alongside the Citizens Bank of Edmond employees and volunteers has been one of the highlights of our food truck adventures.”
Citizens Bank of Edmond’s Community Lobby will feature kids activities including photos with one of Disney’s favorite pairs: Woody and Buzz from Toy Story.
Heard on Hurd was started by Citizens Bank 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.
