Main Street’s Finest Eateries Come Together to Offer Tastings & Specials in this Interactive Tasting Event to Help Raise Money for Main Street Business Improvement Association and Fund Free Community Programming
The 7th Annual MAINopoly: Taste of Main Street will take place on Sunday, May 29th from 12-5 p.m. at the street’s best food and beverage establishments to raise funds for the Main Street Business Improvement Association. MAINopoly is a fun, interactive community event that mirrors the classic board game, and gives participants a culinary walking tour of Main Street’s finest restaurants, juiceries, ice cream stores, coffee shops and more.
This all-ages event, pet-friendly tasting event is a take on the classic board game, where every participating location you visit allows you to use “MAINopoly dollars” for food or beverage tastings, and earns you credit to fill your game board map for a chance to win free prizes. Throw on your top hats and monocles, get your “dice” ready, and make your way down Main Street for a culinary walking tour of Main Street’s finest eateries! A portion of all proceeds benefits the Main Street Business Improvement District.
Other activities include “GO TO JAIL” Beer Garden with brews from Gilly’s American Lager, cocktails from Dulce Vida Tequila, DJ, photo booth, food from Ashland Hill, games and more. Attendees are encouraged to dress in “Monopoly”-inspired or patriotic Memorial Day attire. Those who make their way around the board and turn it in at the end will be entered to win a “Taste of Main Street” prize package valued at nearly $1,000.
