With Generous support from:
The June 4th Imagine Main Street that we lovingly call “Strollin’ on Main” will postponed and merged with the September 3rd “Steam Rollin'” night. We would have loved to enjoy a beautiful June summer night, but the pandemic has not offered us the ability to do many traditional things. Downtown’s Memorial Day parade, Cruisin on Main has been cancelled, and much more. But we trust that we’ll be back to ‘normal’ soon. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, watch our Facebook page on Thursday, June 4th at 6 p.m. for a virtual stroll down our historic Main Street, see what’s going on, hear some music from our Town Troubadour, Bill Ludwig, see some art being created, and enjoy this unique time together!
Past remembrances: Thank you to the Army-Navy Club, Harvest Beads, and EM Dougan Art and Framing and Frame Dimensions for being engaged and opening your doors to us. Thanks to the Angry Egg, Filomena’s, Bistro on Main and Mulberry Street for using your culinary expertise to engage our patrons!

Imagine a community where arts and culture are celebrated, well, that’s Manchester. So enjoy every activity and support as you can. Volunteers are always needed and we’d love to hear from you!
Imagine Main Street began its arts and cultural happenings in June of 2012. An ever-growing number of artists, artisans and musicians have participated in the events drawing hundreds of visitors to the Downtown area. The collaborative spirit and vision of these events has increased the vitality of the downtown and the cultural vibrancy of the area. These events have often been street wide festivals including art vendors, horse drawn carriages, music, zumba demonstrations, dance performances, street performers, ceramic demonstrations and sales, garden displays, poetry readings and magician performances , a pub crawl, wine tasting, restaurant specials . The collaborative efforts of the events have inspired many new projects.
Thank you also to those who support IMS by putting their greeting or business card on our event maps: Key Bank, ECHN, Sinclair Risk and Financial Management, Manchester Chamber of Commerce, Cruisin’ on Main committee, Town of Manchester, Primary Residential Mortgage and Frame Dimensions. And thanks to the Army-Navy Club, WORK_SPACE and The Firestone for allowing us to use your inside spaces for our rainy – and other – days! We are grateful for your faith and support!
