Main Street Car Free Festival

Free of charge. Free of boring corporate stuff. Free of cars

2016 is here! The festival this year is Sunday, June 19st; Noon to 7pm from Broadway to 30th on Main Street. Rain or shine!

Come celebrate with us for what is shaping up to be the biggest street party ever held on Main. Our footprint is a massive 21 blocks and we are in the process of filling those blocks with as many awesome things as we possibly can. Look for mini-festivals, community-supported stages with dozens of bands, multiple kids zones, three giant artisan markets and more! Please consider getting involved by volunteering or participating in some way. This festival is produced 100% by volunteers so we could use the help!
