Main Street in Downtown Salisbury, MD is a historic street lined closely by breathtaking architecture. It has undergone the course of what many other Downtowns have - the rise and fall of retail, the primacy of the automobile, and experimentation with pedestrian malls. It has survived two major fires and somehow many beautiful buildings remain. In recent years, it has become host to dozens of outdoor festivals, including the National Folk Festival - America's largest and oldest traditional arts/music festival. Main Street has survived and thrived after a 4-year renovation where the entire length of the 2 longest streets (Main and Divison) were torn up for a water/sewer/fiber/streetscaping plan. Through grit and cooperation, more restaurants, bars and shops exist on those 2 streets than ever before with construction underway on hundreds of apartments, new stores, a distillery and steak house. Recently, Salisbury University opened a major Entrepreneurship Center and a University store on the street, and student housing is under construction on the street as well. Two new coworking spaces have opened and retail has made a surprising comeback. A fencing club, indoor skateboard park and brand new performing arts center are new arrivals as well. There is no happier, friendlier or more diverse street in America to walk down on a 3rd Friday of the month!
