Unfortunately, MAIN ST. is not pet friendly.  Pets are often intimidated by crowds and can react unpredictably.  For the comfort and safety of all patrons, people with pets will be asked to leave the event area, which is enforced through city ordinance.  All service dogs are welcome.

Celebrating its 32nd year, MAIN ST. has grown into the largest, nationally ranked arts festival in the country.  Attendance is free.  Please note:  Artist booths close at 8 p.m. Thursday – Saturday and 6 p.m. on Sunday.
