Oorang Bang

OoRang Bang 2024 | June 7th & 8th

All events will be held at 350 N.High St. 
(The site of the old Elgin School)

Oorang Bang is an exciting two-day street festival that offers an array of activities for attendees to enjoy. The event features a diverse selection of food trucks, craft vendors, live music, inflatables, and a beer garden that will be available on both days. On Friday, visitors can participate in the car show, enjoy chicken BBQ at the corner of Walnut and High, and a performance by Analog Youth in the evening. Saturday kicks off with a pancake breakfast sponsored by and benefitting the LaRue Firefighters Association. The day’s activities also include a 5K run, the Cox Garden Tractor Pull, Duck Race, Cow Plop Drop, Craft Vendors, Kids Inflatables, and Live Bake auction. Live music performances on Saturday include Dudley Creek Band and Omega Kick.

We are collecting silent auction items and they can be dropped off prior to the Oorang Bang at Shear Skills Barbershop in LaRue or brought to any LCA meeting at 350 N High St.

We are looking for volunteers to help with the Oorang Bang this year. Contact Connie Kendall at [email protected] for information.
