Better Block Allen: March 20 & 21

Join us as we craft a more vibrant, destination-filled vision for downtown Allen on March 20 & 21.


Using feedback from local residents, the Better Block and community participants will implement a two-day installation and celebration along Main Street that includes music, art, public furniture, small business pop-ups, and people-oriented space and activities. In addition to creating an engaging event, we will be collecting feedback from the community that will help guide future development in downtown!

Contact our project manager to sign up or learn more about being a part of our pop-up market and performance schedule along Main Street. We're so excited to hear your ideas! 


In addition to attending the event itself, we invite members of the community to swing hammers and sling paint at our volunteer workshops on March 18-20. All ages and skill levels welcome!
