‘Late Night on Main’ returns to Main Street
Friday night event is first of 4 street parties in 2017


CARMEL, IN
–Are you ready for a late night street party in the Carmel Arts & Design District? Join us Friday, May 26, from 9 p. m. to Midnight for the first of four “Late Night on Main” events on Main Street. The City will shut down the block just east of Range Line Road to make way for musical entertainment from the Carl Storie Band, dancing in the street and enjoying the eats and treats from local vendors who will be staying up late with us.

Late Night on Main was launched in 2016 as part of the U.S. Mayors Conference Opening Night celebration. The city received a great deal of positive feedback on that event and another held in conjunction with the BMW Championship, prompting the expansion to four events in 2017.

“Our goal with these exciting late night events in the Arts & Design District is to boost our night life entertainment and bring people together to share music, dining and a little shopping in a unique setting under the stars,” said Mayor Jim Brainard. “The events also provide a great opportunity to see the new developments underway and businesses in the District that they might not notice if they only drive through or have not visited recently.”

With our goal of bringing more attention to different sections of Main Street, the Late Night on Main events will be moved east and west on Main Street throughout the year. Last year, both events were held in the city block near the Monon Greenway, but this year, our first Late Night on Main will be a few blocks to the west. Patrons on the patios of Woody’s Library Restaurant and Agave Mexican Grill will have front row seats to the show!

This means Main Street from Range Line Road to 1st Avenue NE/NW will be closed Friday beginning about 3 p.m. so preparations can be made, including the placement of a stage for the band. Detour signs will be in place to direct traffic around the closure. Plan for extra time Friday evening if your commute includes Main Street.

Mark your calendars for upcoming Late Night on Main events July 1, August 19 and October 7.
