The 18th Annual Double Decker Arts Festival is scheduled for April 26-27, 2013
Weather Update ( as of 4.25.12): After meeting this morning with Oxford’s Emergency Management Director Jimmy Allgood, The Oxford CVB and Chamber have made the decision to proceed with plans for the weekend. It is evident to us that although there is a chance of scattered rain in the forecast, we will not be under a severe weather warning on Saturday. Therefore, at this time the decision has been made to proceed with plans for the Double Decker Arts Festival Presented by C Spire Wireless and Spring Run as scheduled. We will continue to monitor the weather. Updates or changes to the schedules will be posted on social media and our websites www.doubledeckerfestival.com and www.doubledeckerspringrun.com. AM 1630 will also be updated with weather and change of schedule information throughout the next couple of days. We look forward to everyone coming out to our events throughout the weekend- rain or shine!
