With the great success of other similar metro area street festival events such as H&8th Night Market or Premiere on Film Row, the folks at Citizens Bank of Edmond created Heard on Hurd in 2014—which drew thousands of people to enjoy a day of music and food. Organizers, obviously thrilled by the turnout and the community spirit, quickly announced Heard on Hurd would become a monthly event during the spring, summer, and fall months, spanning from March to October.
In its fourth year, Heard on Hurd brings over 4,000 visitors who take to the streets of downtown Edmond to enjoy hours of live music, delicious selections from various food trucks, and shopping at local stores after hours.
New this year are the addition of activities in the bank's new downtown lobby—from a local film festival to food samplings to live acoustic music—as well as street performers featuring local musicians at the intersection of Main and Broadway.
