The main goal of the music series is to bring high quality music to people from all walks of life to enjoy. We make concerted efforts to provide a diverse array of music from all genres with a focus on roots based sounds. Additionally, we provide a venue for local artists to display and sell their work.
In the summer, when the music fills the air, old friends sway, grandma dances, and children play, and you know why Tupelo is called home. ‘Down on Main’ has captured the “Tupelo Spirit” and bottled it up for all to consume. As the guitar strums and notes are sung, you can almost see Elvis walking up to Fairpark, where he once entertained the masses, to hear some great live music. This type of event does not just happen. It is a gift given by the community for the community. Local businesses and excited citizens pitch in together with time, effort, energy, and money to make it all happen. So when you are “Down on Main” enjoying the good times, smile at your neighbors and thank them, as we make this a better place together. (reads a lot better with some soft Sam Bush music playing in the background, so turn some on and re-read).
