• As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of the community. Our ever-expanding calendar of events has something for everyone, and we strive to provide quality events and programs for the community.

    Did you know that 100% of our annual budget comes directly from the people and businesses of Dixon and the surrounding area and our community events? You make it happen and thank you for your support!

  • Since 1996, the Dixon Main Street has been an active, strong and exciting organization focused on the betterment of downtown Dixon and the city as a whole.
