Friends of the Square Festival

Thursday, May 25, 2017 | 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Join us for the first ever Friends of the Square Festival, an evening of fun-draising at Main Street Square. Festivities include carnival games, a BBQ, beverage garden, prizes and raffles, and a free concert by Kory and the Fireflies with special guest Barrett Hemmings. Friends of the Square Festival is free and open to the public.

We need your help to keep our community events free to the public, to keep Downtown clean and safe, and to ensure that Main Street Square is viable for generations to come. Your support secures the vision and the future of our Downtown and community. Learn more about the Friends of the Square program HERE.

There is something fun for everyone in the Regional Health and Scull Construction Kidz Zone encompassing Sixth St., with inflatables, the Main Street Square Fun Express train, face painting, games, and more. The Kidz Zone will be expanded during the Friends of the Square Festival to include old fashioned carnival games with prizes, 
such as a ping-pong toss, duck pond, and a pie throw.

Let the Main Street Square staff serve you! Our staff will be grilling up your backyard barbeque favorites and offering an assortment of refreshments in the Bud Light Beverage Garden. 

In partnership with Rice Honda, Main Street Square will be selling raffle tickets during their signature events to members of the public for a chance to win their choice of watercraft, motorcycle, or side-by-side UTV, or $10,000 credit toward full retail value at Rice Honda.

Raffle tickets will be sold at Friends of the Square Festival, all Main Street Square Concert Series on Thursday nights, and other select signature events. Purchase one ticket for $20 and three tickets for $40. Limited tickets available. The winner will be selected during the final concert of the summer, on Thursday, Aug. 31. 

If you purchase a ticket at the Friends of the Square Festival or during a Main Street Square Signature concert, you will be entered into a drawing to receive 10 extra tickets following the event. Only tickets purchased at that event will qualify for the drawing.

Each person that purchases a raffle ticket can spin the prize wheel for a chance to win free drinks in the Beverage Garden, two unlimited tasting passes to Main Street Square’s Art & Wine Festival or Bierbörse, passes to the Kidz Zone, and more (only at Friends of the Square Festival). One spin per raffle ticket purchase.

All proceeds from raffle ticket sales benefit Main Street Square, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Some restrictions may apply. For questions or to purchase a raffle ticket, contact the Main Street Square office at 605-716-7979.
