Music on Main began in the summer of 2001 and featured only one concert by local bluegrass favorite Kane’s River on the side-street of South Bozeman Avenue. In the early years, the event evolved into a series of concerts and has benefited from several new additions such as an array of children’s activities, various food vendors with top-notch cuisine, sponsor activities and non-profit information booths.

In the 2007, we moved Music on Main on to Main Street and continued to feature concerts with local and touring bands such as Tony Furtado and Cure for the Common. Music on Main is continuing to adapt and grow with the Gallatin Valley giving the community one more reason to get out and enjoy downtown Bozeman

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this event has been adjusted. While we are still in early planning stages, we are optimistic about vaccine rates and the real possibility of gathering once again on Main Street. This being said, if regulations in the county do not lessen by July 1, we will be unable to produce the level of event our community deserves and will adjust plans accordingly. A decision will be made closer to that date.
