If you have ever spent a summer in Bozeman, then you have most definitely been downtown on a Thursday night enjoying live music, great food and drink specials in the middle of Main Street. Each Thursday from the end of June to the end of August, Main street shuts down from Rouse Ave. to Black Ave. and invites the entire town down for this wonderfully unique Bozeman soiree. This year's first Music on Main is June 28th. Mark your calendars!
