Music on Main is an exciting event with great opportunities for any food vendor.
At each of the 14 Music on Main only 1 spotlight food vendor is invited to serve food right in the middle of the action. The large crowd (800-1500 guests) Music on Main draws is a great opportunity to gain exposure and have an evening filled with great sales. We offer this as a free location to area food vendors.
