2018 Live Work Play


‘Live Work Play Norman’, a fun, young event that celebrated its second year in 2018, is organized by Norman NEXT in collaboration with NEDC to help encourage young talent to stay in Oklahoma, and specifically, Norman. Picture a band, food trucks, local shops and restaurants showcasing everything we love about Norman, so that the next generation will want to choose to make Norman their future home.

The goal of the event is to help introduce college students and young professionals to life in Norman outside of the University setting including:

  • Local Employers
  • Shopping
  • Dining
  • Festivals
  • Arts
  • Real Estate Options


Thank you to everyone who came out to 2018 Live Work Play on Thursday, March 1st in the Grey Street Parking Lot!  This was our biggest event yet and we are excited to see it continue to grow.  Check out what the Norman Transcript had to say about the event by clicking here!
