Dear Heard on Hurd Nonprofit Applicant,
Thank you for your interest in our Edmond neighborhood block party! After a very long 2020, we are thrilled to bring Heard on Hurd back for the 2021 season beginning June 19. This year will look a little different than our previous seasons to provide a safe environment for everyone. We will continue to bring attention and focus to local food, local shopping, local music, and local banking in the OKC metro area!
We invite you to review the vendor information packet, complete all forms and submit them at https://mycitizens.bank/heard-on-hurd/vendor-application as soon as possible. Our vendors are selected monthly by a Citizens Bank of Edmond HoH committee. Our committee works to have a variety of unique vendors with diverse products to fulfill the tastes of our audiences.
We will do our best to make the event better for everyone, however we cannot fulfill all requests. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Thank you for your continued support of Heard on Hurd; it would not be possible without our amazing community!
Cheers to 2021!
Citizens Bank of Edmond
Heard on Hurd Manifesto
Citizens Bank of Edmond started Heard on Hurd to be a family-friendly, local community gathering where everyone can have a great time in downtown Edmond on a Saturday night. Heard on Hurd is an authentic block party style festival that proves to be an excellent opportunity to reach the Edmond community. Edmond has a special vibe of its own and we want to first and foremost provide an outlet for our community to shine. The goal of Heard on Hurd is to create a unique atmosphere large enough to bring in diverse audiences and vendors, but small enough to see a neighbor or friend. Heard on Hurd highlights the importance to shop, eat and dine local. At the heart of Heard on Hurd is our community bank which is proud to provide the means for so many local thriving businesses. We invite you to be a part of the Heard on Hurd movement! You can help us by writing a review for Heard on Hurd, sharing your social media posts with the hashtag #JoinTheHurd, and bringing your friends and family to the event. By being at the festival and sharing about it, you’re an active part of the #JoinTheHurd movement. Thank you for your support!

What kind of vendors do you normally accept into Heard on Hurd?
We love diversity and being able to provide many different types of merchants and cuisines at Heard on Hurd. We accept local food trucks, artisan Pop-Up shops and a monthly non-profit. Citizens Bank of Edmond customers are given priority in selection---we certainly invite you to join the Citizens family!
Why is electricity not provided?
Due to safety reasons, our circuits cannot support everyone being plugged into the outlets in downtown Edmond. Vendors can use generators if needed.
Why are state licenses and state tax permits required of vendors?
We aim to provide a high quality event that is safe and beneficial for the community. All food vendors must be approved by the health department and are inspected on a monthly basis so that our attendees can receive the highest quality of food. State tax permits are required so that the event can support the community holistically by benefitting the vendors who sell the merchandise and to the city who provides the space for us to have the event. It’s a win-win for the community!
What is each vendor responsible for?
Each vendor is responsible for their own set up and tear down. Vendors MUST stay in their designated position for the duration of the event due to safety reasons. Leaving prior to the event conclusion will result in termination from future Heard on Hurd events.
What type of products for Pop-Up shops are you looking for?
Artisan products, clothing, gifts, vintage, home decor. We are not accepting direct sales representatives or consultants at this time.
Can I apply as an alcohol vendor?
Currently, we are not accepting any new alcohol vendors for the 2021 season. Heard on Hurd aims to be a family friendly event and therefore, we will limit the number of alcohol vendors as to provide a safe environment for all. However, our awesome downtown restaurants/bars have alcohol and includes a great environment to consume it. Check out some downtown Edmond establishments such as The Patriarch, Frenzy Brewing, Othello’s, and The Mule.
How do I get my band to play at Heard on Hurd?
If you have an awesome local band, we want to hear from you! Shoot us an email to HeardonHurd@CitizensEdmond.com for consideration.
