The Main Street program is one of the reasons that Murfreesboro’s downtown is such a vibrant community hub, and the nonprofit organization needs your support. Main Street annually brings you JazzFest, Friday Night Live, the Saturday Market, the Christmas Tree Lighting, Trick or Treat on the Square and so much more. Attendance at THE Summer Party, A Taste of Rutherford, is one way you can give back to the community.
The Main Street Program is affiliated with the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s National Main Street Center and follows the tenets of that program. Main Street capitalizes on the unique character of the courthouse square and the surrounding business district with the goal of transforming it into the cultural, social, professional and retail center of Rutherford County ... in essence, the hub of community life.
