WHAT'S
HAPPENING

EVENTS.

Spencer Main Street actively supports many events that take place in downtown Spencer. During the pandemic, the Square has been, understandably, more quiet than usual. However, as the months of 2021 pass, watch for announcements for renewed activities. The Spencer PRIDE Festival, REV20 Festival, Farm-to-Table Dinner, Christmas at the Square, and more, are sure to return!

PROJECTS.

Spencer Main Street has been actively involved in sprucing up its mission area, i.e., the nine-block area surrounding the Court House. 

2017

Historic Liars Bench

The courthouse square in Spencer has a new “liar’s bench” on the corner, giving storytellers a location to spin their tales.

A wooden bench was located on this site from the late 1930s to the early 2000s. 

Contributions: SMS, OCRA, IOTD, Sweet Owen CVB, OCCF, Spencer VFW Post 1405, and Babbs.

2017

Railroad Garden

The Railroad Gardens enhance three full blocks of downtown Spencer, starting from the Courthouse Square and running west along Franklin Street. Spencer Main Street is responsible for having the beds maintained throughout the year.
