With your help, Main Street Marion hopes to make downtown Marion a destination place again!  We want everyone to feel invited downtown.  The NEW downtown celebrations held on the first Friday of each month all year long will take on many purposes, including orienting people to the downtown district, targeting diverse audiences, entrepreneurs, and consumers, and highlighting different downtown venues.

July’s venue highlights include Folkie’s Tavern, Beatnik’s Music Hall, Shear Dreamz Salon & Spa, and the Quilter’s Hall of Fame. Look forward to some cool glasses from Shear Dreamz Salon & Spa to watch the fireworks, and stay tuned for information about the Quilter’s Hall of Fame Celebration Month!!

Beatnik’s Music Hall will also feature some great acts on July 4th, including Ryan Fox!!  Check out the Ryan Fox Downtown Marion Tour on Facebook – #RyanFoxDtMarion!
