Local Edmond: Citizens Bank of Edmond’s Heard on Hurd Throws Birthday Bash
Carter Sampson, Chanda Graham, The Vibro Kings & Edmond Youth Chorus to Perform
Citizens Bank of Edmond’s Heard on Hurd will return Saturday, September 21st, at the corner of Broadway and Hurd in downtown Edmond from 6-10 p.m. Heard on Hurd will be celebrating its 5th birthday with cookies in the Citizens community lobby, as well as activities flowing out onto the streets of downtown Edmond.
“It’s incredible that our little bank customer/community appreciation event has grown to this capacity,” said Citizens Bank of Edmond’s President & CEO and Heard on Hurd creator, Jill Castilla. “In 2014, we were expecting maybe 300 people to show up to our first Heard on Hurd and within the first hour, several food trucks sold out and we ended up with three thousand in downtown Edmond. We knew from that very first event that Heard on Hurd was going to be a big deal for the community.”
Three talented artists will take the Heard on Hurd main stage to celebrate with us including the rock ’n roll “surfabilly” blues-trio Vibro Kings, jazz and blues artist Chanda Graham, and soulful singer songwriter Carter Sampson.
A special performance by the Edmond Fine Arts Youth Chorus will take place before the first band. Not all the entertainment is limited to the stage as artists also fill the streets. Circles and Stories and Jipsi will be performing at the intersection of Main and Broadway.
The featured nonprofit, Edmond Women’s Club, will have a tent to the right of the stage. EWC is a volunteer organization composed of community-spirited women who have combined their talents to promote the cultural, civic, educational, and community efforts of the City of Edmond.
On September 21st, festival goers can enjoy a variety of food including new vendors such as Daisy-Mae’s, Chef Ray’s Street Eats, Nicks Tamales, Let’s Do Greek, Big O’s Pork and Dreams, Klemm’s Smoke Haus, Kettle Popstars, Kona Ice, Mighty Corndog, El Reno Onion Burgers, Backroads Barbeque, Oak City Pizza Co., The Rolling Café, The Chosen Juan, Taste of Soul, Taco Nation, The Saucee Sicilian, The Sugar Shack Sweets and Treats, Junction Coffee Tiny House, Bunny’s Burgers, The Fried Taco, The Brown’s Kitchen, Scars and Stripes, Snow S’more, The Big Friendly Beer Bus, The Patriarch, Sizzle N Spice, Othello’s and more!
