 WIGGLE OUT LOUD GROWS BIGGER AND LOUDER

 OKLAHOMA CITY — It’s nearly time to wop, bop, boom and boogie again at this year’s Wiggle Out Loud – Oklahoma City’s free, active-family outdoor music festival presented by The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center and benefiting The Children’s Hospital Volunteers.  

The festival returns for its fourth year from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 18 at its new location, The Myriad Botanical Gardens Great Lawn, 301 W Reno Ave.

 The new venue means an even larger festival filled with musical acts, health- and fitness-related activities, hands-on art, healthy food and more, all geared at getting children of all ages movin’ and groovin’ their way to healthier lives.  

“The Myriad Gardens is a larger venue and that means the festival is growing,” said Chris Wiser, festival founder and member of the popular band Sugar Free Allstars. “It has been great to see the festival grow and develop since it began in 2013, and I’m convinced this will be the best year for Wiggle Out Loud yet!”

Featured bands this year include festival favorite Sugar Free Allstars, Andrew and Polly, Lucas Ross, Aaron Nigel Smith, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo and Alegria Real.

 Last year, more than 7,000 people attended the festival.

The Great Lawn Band Shell will feature an upbeat and family-friendly soundtrack for a variety of healthy activities spanning the park, including a giant fun zone with lawn games and hoppy horse races. Collaborations with arts organizations add color and texture to the festival atmosphere with creativity-inspiring activities. Musical activities planned include a playground for children and families to explore and collaborate with musical instruments.

The community stage will feature local musicians and performance artists.

Proceeds from the festival will benefit growing the festival and The Children’s Hospital Volunteers. Their programs encourage patients at Children’s to play, get moving, express themselves creatively, socialize, learn, enjoy music and art, laugh and do all they can to focus on being a kid and not being in the hospital. 

“It’s been an incredible partnership that’s brought great programs and connections we’re able to share with children at The Children’s Hospital,” said Sara Jacobson, director of The Children’s Hospital Volunteers. “This partnership allows us to bring Wiggle Out Loud-type fun to kids who wouldn’t be able to make it to the festival.”
