Using feedback from local residents, the Better Block and community participants will implement a two-day installation and free 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 hosting volunteer workshops and collecting feedback from the community that will help guide future development in downtown!

Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to the event!

Join us March 20 & 21 as we envision a more vibrant, destination-filled version of downtown Allen.
