Richmond Main Street Initiative - Music on the Main

Music on the Main is our longest running event series. Since 2001, this concert series has brought thousands of people Downtown to enjoy a night on the town filled with music, food, and family fun. Each concert features a variety of musical performances, arts and crafts activities for children, local entrepreneurs and nonprofit organizations, and food. Music on the Main is a critical tool that Richmond Main Street uses to engage the community, provide business opportunities to local entrepreneurs and district merchants, and build a strong arts and entertainment district.
