Merry Main Street

The "igloos" at Block 34 in downtown Stillwater will be a shopping destination for the holiday season. Opening day is Friday.

Merry Main Street is Stillwater’s newest holiday attraction scheduled to begin later this week and be open to residents and visitors alike the four weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas in the heart of downtown Stillwater.

 Activities taking place on Block 34 and along Main Street will include four specialty retail shops in climate-controlled geodesic dome structures, carriage rides, food trucks, Christmas tree sales, music, and more. A larger hospitality geodesic dome will also be featured as a furniture retail dome during the day and host a rotating hospitality event each Friday and Saturday night from 5-9 p.m.

 Iron Monk Brewing Company will host a beer garden and a decorated Airstream area will serve as a gathering area with seating and games. Saturday afternoons will feature family activities such as S’mores with Firemen, Cookie with Cops, and painting with the Prairie Arts Center. Window murals and displays will provide a fun atmosphere while browsing the downtown retail shops.

 Merry Main Street also includes the traditional Stillwater events such as the Tree Lighting Celebration at Chris Salmon Plaza on Sunday, Dec. 1, Christmas Parade of Lights on Thursday, Dec. 5, and Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Shannon Williams, co-owner of Greige Goods in downtown Stillwater, and City Councilor Alane Zannotti, have partnered as the Merry Main Street coordinators. To help you get in the holiday spirit, they have designed a T-shirt that is available for $30 and can be purchased at Greige Goods.
