Twister Fest's mission has been to bring together some of the amazing talent and culture that Oklahoma has to offer.

A Winter to Remember
A winter to remember for me started by digging and at night every night for 9 months straight with one day off. This silted in pond is one of four lakes that are on the Muscle Car Ranch's near 80 acres with the addition the new 17 Acres and a 4 acre lake. By the Fall of 2014, I was planting 70 telephone poles 9 foot deep so I could frame up using all double and triple bridge plank, 3 x 12 timbers for the frame, and larger beams went down the center of the main floors. 21 poles are in the main floor area. (Look closely on the satellite image you can see shadows of the poles from the south side shadowing in toward the middle.) The structure ended up being about 112 by 20. Most of the boards are 1920s Bridge plank from the Hollis Oklahoma Red River Bridge. Each pile of dirt you see was approximately 10 scoops from the front end loader . The backhoe in this picture I was about 1/4 finished. The digging ended up with 7500 yards of material removed around four acres of dump truck piles. This job took me 16 hours hours a day for almost 9 months (pretty much by myself) until the floor in which Gary Lawrence and Wes Hallmark got them some, retrieval of materials which my son Nick Hart was continuously in on. Planting the large telephone poles in the 9-foot deep slots dug by the backhoe was also due to my son Nick and Kenneth Taylor. This turned into being one of our favorite staging areas for music and our Twister Fest Music Festival's first weekend of June welcomed the new Power Generation Station Dock at the Muscle Car Ranch which was ready for the first annual Twister Fest. In late June 2015, the lake filled up one week before the event which we felt was a good sign!
