Owner Fest 2023

Co-op's Annual Owner Meeting happening Saturday, April 29th!

What’s Owner Fest, you ask? It is the Co-op's Annual Meeting where we provide a year-in-review, a financial update, answer questions from attendees, and announce the winners of the Board Election. Don't let the word "meeting" throw you off - it isn't all business! We have a lot of fun too. Owner Fest is a great way to connect with Co-op staff, our board members, listen to live local music while drinking and eating some great food! 


About the Night

Social 5:00 PM

Be Happy Social Hour with live local music!


Meeting 6:00 pm

Meeting (Last call for voting. Ballots close at 6:30 pm)


Dinner 7:00 pm

Catered dinner from the Co-op and 17th Street

Tickets are necessary to attend the dinner and cost only $5 per person. A ticket includes a dish of your choice, non-alcoholic drinks, and two drink tickets for either beer or wine. There will be a cash bar. (Ticket sales will be available in-store and online April 15 - April 27) 


Pre-event registration participation will be used to calculate the quantity of food needed. Owners are asked to preregister whenever possible. However, tickets will also be sold at the door for $10 each.


Those in attendance will be entered into a raffle for Co-op gift cards. Board candidates will also be in attendance, so the event will provide a  great opportunity to meet prospective candidates as well as other Co-op owners, too. Owners will also have one last chance to vote for the board of director candidates if they haven't had the opportunity to vote ahead of time. At 6 p.m., the polls will close and the meeting portion of Owner Fest will begin with reports from General Manager Francis Murphy and from our board members. Owners will also have the opportunity to direct any questions to the board about Co-op matters.

Dinner will start promptly after the meeting. Owners can choose either:

17th Street - pulled pork, baked beans and potato salad 



Co-ops Green Curry Vegetables - green peas, red bell pepper, broccoli, and onions in a sweet pineapple lime curry sauce.  Served over locally grown organic brown rice. Along with Potato Samosa - potatoes, green peas, ginger, cilantro, and spices in a puff pastry shell.

Location: 17th Street Warehouse -  217 N 17th St, Murphysboro, IL 62966
