Whether attendees are tapping their toes to familiar tunes or discovering new favorites, the sounds of Main Street Fest will provide the perfect backdrop to a weekend of fun and celebration.

Casey Donahew brings his signature sound to headline Friday night on the Main Stage sponsored by Arca Continental Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages. Get ready to sing along to hits like "One Star Flag" and "She Likes to Fly" under the Texas sky. Then, step back into some 90s nostalgia!
