Oklahoma City's H&8th Night Market is a family-friendly street festival now held in June. The event started in 2011 as a monthly event and quickly became a hit, drawing thousands to the Midtown Oklahoma City area to enjoy offerings from the metro area'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, and the second annual event took place on June 2, 2017, from 6 to 11 p.m. There is no charge for admission, and pets are welcome. Also, look for pop-up shops with local handmade goods.
Food Trucks and More
The highlight of the event, of course, is the eclectic collection of locally owned food trucks, but craft beer is also on hand from Oklahoma City's Anthem Brewing Company, featuring IPA, stout, blond ale and specialty brews. The trucks serve up something for everyone, including tacos, pizza, chicken and waffles, BBQ, desserts, and much, much more.
H&8th Night Market has an outdoor stage just south of Elemental Coffee with local and indie bands performing throughout the night. Inside music venues include Elemental Coffee Roasters and Ludivine.
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 Street and Hudson in midtown Oklahoma City. The trucks are parked along Hudson Avenue, between NW 6th and NW 10th Streets.
