George McConnell & The Nonchalants live at "Down On Main" festival in Tupelo, Mississippi - September 14, 2017 @ Gateway Park

“Down on Main” is a free concert series administered by a group of forward thinking professionals with a goal to bring high quality music to people from all walks of life to enjoy, while also nurturing the artistic soul of our Tupelo Community. This vision comes with the oversight of the Downtown Tupelo Main Street Association.

This concert series is FREE.

The committee is made up of people from all parts of the state and across the South. Once they decided to make Tupelo their home, they realized there was a void or lack of “live” music in this musically historic town, the birthplace of Elvis Presley. An event truely organized BY the community FOR the community…

It will be held at Fairpark Ampitheater in downtown Tupelo from 6:00-10:00. 

Oh…and did we mention that it’s FREE!

Soft drinks, food and beer will be available for purchase. Coolers are not allowed. So bring your lawn chairs and the whole family for an evening of fun, friends, good music and a great opportunity to GET DOWN ON MAIN with us!
