H&8th Street Festival in Oklahoma City

H&8th Street Festival Oklahoma City
••• © H&8th Night Market

Oklahoma City's H&8th Night Market is a family-friendly street festival held in June. The event started in 2011 as a monthly event and quickly became a hit, drawing thousands to the Midtown area to enjoy offerings from the metro's top food trucks. For many, it signaled yet another big step in the renaissance of downtown, the kind of outdoor social event one would find in other large cities but not previously in Oklahoma City.

In 2016, it became an annual affair.

In addition to the eclectic food truck options, H&8th features live music and craft beer in an open setting with lighted outdoor furniture. There is no charge for admission, and pets are allowed. Also, look for pop-up shops with local handmade goods.

2017 Date and Time:

The 2017 event takes place Friday, June 2 from 6-11 p.m.

Location & Directions:

The event's name itself tells you where to go for the fun. The 'H' stands for Hudson Avenue. So just make your way to the corner of NW 8th and Hudson in Midtown Oklahoma City. The trucks will be parked along Hudson, between NW 6th and NW 10th, and the live music stage is just south of Elemental Coffee.

Food Trucks & More:

The highlight of the event, of course, is the collection of food trucks. As organizers put it, it's the "best vehicle-based food you'll find in OKC." Though a list of scheduled trucks is not yet available for 2017, previous years have included:
