A message regarding Mainstreet Day 2020

At this point, Mainstreet Day is still on. We are, of course, monitoring the situation and will make decisions as necessary. We will follow the guidance of the CDC and MDH, as well as the City of Hopkins, and will comply with any orders put forth by the state or national government.

Once a decision has been made, it will be posted here and on our website, and all registered vendors will be notified.

As you know, Mainstreet Day is a community fundraiser organized by JCI Hopkins. We use the proceeds from this event to reinvest in projects and organizations in Hopkins and the surrounding area.

Beyond that, this is one of our favorite days of the year and it is heartbreaking to even think about not having it this year. We certainly have everyone's health and safety at the forefront of our minds, and will let you know as soon as our final decision has been made.

Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe!

~Erin & Lisa, Mainstreet Day co-chairs
