First-ever Edfest to Raise Money for Edmond Mobile Meals

Many people who are homebound, especially those who are ill or elderly, can oftentimes be unable to provide themselves with healthy, hot meals. That is why, for 39 years, Edmond Mobile Meals has offered homestyle meals to these people in order to help provided them with their daily necessities. Meals are cooked each day by volunteers and delivered to the doorsteps of recipients who qualify to be part of the daily meal schedule.

Because Edmond Mobile Meals offers services to so many people, they are constantly looking for more help, not only from volunteers, but also through monetary support. So, to help raise money for the organization, the first-ever Edfest will be taking place every day this weekend from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. to help raise awareness within the community.  The fun festival will be happening at the Edmonds Farmers Market and will include lots of food, live performances, and beer tastings. Admission is free and open to the public.

Food trucks will be on-site to provide attendees with great food options during the event, and a portion of their proceeds will go directly toward the organization. There will also be beer tastings from breweries including Tall Grass Brewing Co., Battered Boar, Huebert Brewing, Roughtail Brewing, and Mustang Brewing Co. Adults can experience 2-ounce tastings of 20 different local beers for only $30. There will also be performances by local musicians, including Enid fiddler Kyle Dillingham.
