Sharing is caring

The state’s largest free music festival hopes a monthly wine-share will lure donors to ease the financial crunch of staging a three-day event.


Food and Drink Features

Throwing a party is expensive. Even stocking cheap beer and snacks for a handful of friends can be pricey, so imagine preparing for 35,000 to 50,000 friends all descending on a small stretch of downtown Norman for a three-day festival with no ticket sales to help bring in the largest roster of musicians of any other Oklahoma music festival.

Features

Spring in Oklahoma City means an endless number of festivals. With vendor food in one hand, a cold drink in the other, and your eyes on a fascinating piece of art or a cool new band, festivals are a great way to support the local community.
