Imagine Main Street’s 2018 season is planned:

May 3 – Imagine Youth – come see many of our regular vendors and crafters, with the added talent of young musicians, artists, exhibitors, poets and volunteers!  And that’s just a little bit of what’s cooking!

June 7 – Strollin’ on Main – our annual homage during Pride in Manchester 2018.  Loads to do, see, purchase and experience, plus a horse-drawn wagonette to take you for an enjoyable romp down Main Street!

July 5 – Party in the Park – Wonderful music will provide great entertainment with vendors, crafters, artists, food trucks and much more in Center Memorial Park, the heart of Downtown.  Bring your blankets and chairs, check out things to buy and eat, dance to the music of our featured band, Cover2Cover and Alex Forest at intermission, chalk on the walk, and enjoy this close-knit event.

August 2 – Imagine the Goodness – Manchester is full of great volunteer organizations and opportunities, so come visit information tables from these good folks, learn more about what they do, and enjoy a little artistic pleasure as well.  Fun and surprises are in store!  Volunteer groups can sign up for space by contacting

September 6 – Steam Rollin’ – The Forrest Street parking lot area will be a festival of very cool music, fashion, acrobats, activities, and so much more to conclude our season.  Don’t miss it, and wear your corsets and goggles!

All events start at 5:30 p.m. and end at 8 p.m.  But stick around and visit the wonderful restaurants and enjoy the festive aire of our downtown!

We’re inviting local farmers to join us during our season to bring the goodness of food and local culinary treats to our artistic festival.  What could be more creative and inspiring than what our local farms provide!
