(Oxford, PA) – HERR’S, the seed investor for last August’s inaugural Connective Art & Music Festival held in downtown Oxford, Pa., has increased their financial commitment for this year’s event slated for August 3, 2019. With a long track record of charitable support and involvement in the local community, Herr’s recognizes the magnitude of what can be achieved when many people work together towards a common goal.
Ed Herr, President & CEO of Herr Foods, Inc., said, “We are very thankful for the opportunity to help bring such an exciting event to Oxford. Our employees are such a big part of this great town that we are all honored to do what we can to connect and build community.”
Daryl Thomas, Herr’s Senior VP of Sales, added, “Herr’s is looking forward to helping market the Connective Festival and take it to the next level in this great community.”
An event benefiting two 501(c)3 non-profits, Oxford Arts Alliance and Oxford Mainstreet Inc, the Connective Festival was conceived as a way to bring the people of Oxford together, as well as expose to the region that Oxford has a growing artistic and cultural vibe. The 2018 festival gathered an estimated crowd of 6,000 for a day full of diverse music on multiple stages, visual artists from all over the region, themed tents featuring demonstrations and activities for kids and adults, and a variety of interactive music and art opportunities.
Brian Wenzka, Executive Director of Oxford Mainstreet, Inc., promises festival goers that this year will be even better. “We learned so much last year and got a lot of great feedback from those who attended. Our team is bringing back all the best parts of last year’s festival and working on some exciting new additions that we think people will love. The positive response to last year’s event has been inspiring to our committee, and that inspiration has kept the creative juices flowing!” Wenzka explained.
“It’s a day filled with all kinds of activities. There is truly something for everyone. And Herr’s is thrilled to be part of such a great event,” said Herr.
