With each new season there is a reason to celebrate our downtown.
Spring features BLOOM, a one-day event filled with plenty of fun (and free) activities for all ages.
Summer festivities kick off with 3rd THURSDAYS, a monthly event series that takes place on the third Thursday of every month from June throught October. ROUTE 23 ARTS & MUSIC FESTIVAL is a three-day event in late August featuring multiple entertainment stages, craft beer, food trucks, street performers, an art fair, and original plays presented by the Roustabout Theatre Troupe.
We celebrate fall during the final 3RD THURSDAYS of the season with a harvest festival that includes free hay rides, fresh donuts, music and food.
In November, POP ON MAIN STREET is held in tandem with Small Business Saturday, a nationwide event on the Saturday after Thanksgiving that encourages people to shop local. POP ON MAIN STREET features pop up markets, special deals and events at downtown retailers, and plenty of tasty treats.
Winter doesn't stop us from hosting an outdoor festival. In February, LET'S CHILL WINTER FEST attracts thousands of vitistors for ice games and activities, a chili cook-off, a hot cocoa dash, free trolley rides, an artisan fair, the area's only Wine Walk, and tons of other fun for the entire family. LET'S CHILL WINTER FEST kicks off on Friday evening in a heated tent on Tolan Square with THE BIG FREEZE. Patrons enjoy tasty treast, bar service, and some of the best Jazz music around.
