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. Sponsored by Black Hills Insurance Agency and U.S. Bank.
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.
There is something fun for everyone in the Regional Health and Scull Construction Service 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 and duck pond.
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. Be sure to spin the prize wheel in the beverage garden for a chance to win a free drink, two unlimited tasting passes to Main Street Square’s Art & Wine Festival or Bierbörse, and more.
