Maybe it’s the smell of the delicious food in the air. Or the warmth from the sun on your skin. Or the feeling that this is the best lunch break you will ever have downtown. Whatever the reason, Picnics in the Courtyard have been growing in popularity, and Main Street Marion is happy to provide this opportunity to showcase a downtown venue, highlight local eateries, and attract a diverse audience to the downtown core.

Main Street Marion is the independent nonprofit downtown association that inspires, unifies and champions the Downtown Marion Experience.
