Double Decker Festival

On April 27th – 28th the 23rd Annual Double Decker Festival will be held at the Square in Oxford. MaxxSouth Broadband was excited to be a sponsor again this year.

Can you believe that the Double Decker started with just a bed of an old pickup truck serving as the stage for music and only hosted a handful art and food vendors? Today, the event is entered around the historic Courthouse Square and a crowd of more than 60,000 people gather. The inspiration for the festival is from an iconic red Double Decker bus that Oxford imported for England in 1994.

Now in a two-day format, Double Decker will kick-off on Friday evening with Thacker Mountain Radio hosting a live broadcast complete with music. Saturday is an all-day affair featuring nearly two hundred art and food vendors while a generous mix of both local and touring musicians take to the stage.
