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

Charles Martin
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.

That's a bold statement.


CFN

“In the mayor’s election, 7 percent showed up for the vote, and they thought that was a great deal. People didn’t even know it occurred. If people knew there was a vote, I’d be mayor right now.”
