Get involved with Main Street Kent
At Main Street Kent, we do more than host great events. We support our downtown businesses through year-round marketing efforts, promote historic preservation, and keep our downtown beautiful through many volunteer-lead programs.
All year long, we produce events that drive traffic to our downtown businesses: Progressive Events, Chocolate Walk, Art & Wine Festival, Oktoberfest, Small Business Saturday, & ‘Round Town Music Festival.
We keep our downtown beautiful, alive and full of art through: Adopt-A-Spot, Clean-Up Kent Days, Holiday Lights & Window Decorating Contest, & Public Art Projects.
Main Street Kent is always looking for friendly, energetic, reliable individuals to become volunteers with our organization. Every event we host requires the help of volunteers. Being a Main Street Kent volunteer is a great way to meet new people, know what’s going on in our community, and give back to it.
