The Fun Begins for Marshall Main Street


Downtown Marshall, Texas, comes alive every second Saturday beginning in March – and every month through October – with an outdoor festival hosted by Marshall Main Street. The event offers arts, crafts, vendors, live music, and a great car show.

The day begins at 9 a.m. when vendors open for business along North Washington Avenue with an ever-changing mix of merchandise. Visitors find handcrafted jewelry and gifts, art, antiques, and sometimes word workings and pop-ups from local authors. Marshall’s downtown shops and restaurants offer food and drink throughout the day, as well as unique gifts and home furnishings, antiques, linens, clothing, and accessories.

Beginning at 5 p.m., the Rusty Lug Nutz Car Club hosts the monthly Car Show & Cruise Night — the vintage, classic, and muscle cars are often seen downtown long before the official start time.

Second Saturday evenings mean musical entertainment in Telegraph Park in the heart of downtown. Free outdoor concerts in Texas’ birthplace of Boogie Woogie music usually begin around 8 p.m. Guests bring lawn chairs and settle in for a good show.  

Activities and entertainment lineup for Marshall Main Street’s Second Saturday change monthly.

Market on the Square, a co-op farmers market, is featured during the summer as well as a Children’s Dollar Craft from 9 to 11 a.m. starting in June. Crafts range from painting to planting and even feature a cookie and pie contest.
