About the Madras Downtown association

The Solar Eclipse of August 2017 left some Madras business owners with a question: What would it take to recreate that kind of fun, excitement, and economic boost for businesses on an annual basis?

After lots of dreaming and excited discussion, they had their answer.

While they couldn’t arrange for an astronomical event of that magnitude, they could create a summer series of family-friendly events that would showcase the talents of local artists and performers and highlight local businesses.
