Date set for third installment of Oxford’s Connective Art & Music Festival
● By Steven Hoffman
Festival planners have announced Saturday, Aug. 8, 2020 as the date for the next Connective Art & Music Festival. Herr’s will return as the event’s presenting sponsor.
Established in 2018 as a joint fundraiser for the Oxford Arts Alliance and Oxford Mainstreet Inc. (OMI), two 501(c)(3) non-profits, the Connective Festival has quickly become one of the most popular festivals in the region, attracting thousands of people to downtown Oxford.
In addition to promoting Oxford’s growing artistic and cultural vibe, festival organizers hope the event will increase awareness and support for the arts and music, and bring people together.
“The employees at Herr’s are happy to return to the Connective in the role of presenting sponsor. In a world of polarization on many fronts, we love the theme of ‘unique friends’ coming together to build community,” explained Ed Herr, President and CEO of Herr Foods, Inc. In addition to lending their financial support, last year Herr’s helped with many aspects of planning and could be seen on site the day of the festival providing loads of free snacks to guests and jumping in wherever needed.
Ongoing developments in the festival planning will be shared via social media, as well as on the festival website at www.connectivefestival.org.
