MSA Dancing on Main Street

MSA Dancing on Main Street Music Festival SATURDAY, AUGUST 5 In Historical Downtown Amherst 3 to 11:30 pm Main Street Amherst is proud to present its 14th annual Dancing on Main Street event.

The festivities kick off at 3 pm on August 4th in historic, downtown Amherst. Dancing on Main Street is a community music festival, which showcases top area bands and helps promote downtown Amherst’s great taverns and diverse restaurants. The event begins at 3 pm and the fun continues until midnight. Premier Toyota-Scion of Amherst has partnered with us again this year to help bring this free event to our downtown. Premier Toyota-Scion will also showcase several of their new vehicles on the downtown streets during the event. There will be a kids entertainment in front of the stage beginning at 3 pm until 5 pm. Come and enjoy the bounce houses provided by the Amherst Congregational United Church of Christ on Church Street and kid games on Park Avenue by Family Fellowship. Take the kids home and come back for the Roadhouse Band at 5:30 pm and The Current Vibe at 9 pm. While music is at center stage at the corner of Church Street and Park Avenue, there are many more activities and offerings throughout the downtown. Many of our taverns and restaurants offer food specials on the street throughout the day. Take advantage of seating offered outside the taverns to enjoy your food and drinks. Our downtown tavern sponsors are offering great specials and the tavern owners are organizing a Corn Hole tournament, which should provide some great fun and rivalry among the taverns and their patrons. Stop in a participating tavern to get on board for the fun! As you stroll along Church Street and Park Avenue, you’ll also find food concessions and beverages offered on the streets. Main Street Amherst offers cold beer on tap and Mike’s Hard Lemonade. Many downtown shops and businesses stay open late for your shopping convenience. All in all, it’s a great day for family fun. Come early and stay late – there will plenty to keep the entire family busy and entertained from afternoon until midnight. This community-focused event is organized by Main Street Amherst, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote and maintain an historic and economically vital downtown that is attractive and accessible to people of all ages. Main Street Amherst is a nationally accredited and official Ohio Main Street community. Sponsorship of the event by community-minded businesses, Captain’s Club, Cedar Pub, The Brew Kettle, Park Bar & Grille, RC’s Brewhouse, The Pour House, Ziggy’s Pub & Restaurant, Cork Tree Restaurants and our main elite sponsor, Premier Toyota-Scion of Amherst, makes this event possible each year and keeps it free for you to enjoy. Dancing on Main Street is one of our community’s most enjoyable family events, and dovetails well with our mission, an important part of which is the revitalization of our downtown. We’re excited to present this event again this year, and we wish to thank our many hard-working volunteers, our sponsors, and our Main Street members. We encourage everyone to come out and support Main Street Amherst — we are working hard to revitalize and promote historic downtown Amherst. There will be over a dozen food vendors selling all sorts of good food for you to choose from.
