Every year, the streets of Downtown Stuartt shut down and the community comes out for a day of live musical performances, food, drinks, vendors and of course – dancin’ in the streets!
It all began in the Summer of 1987. There was a call was made to community leaders from the Stuart/Martin Chamber of Commerce. The call was to brainstorm a fundraising event that would keep the newly established Stuart Main Street program alive. Thirty years later, Downtown Stuart is still Dancin’ in the Streets!
Today, the event continues to be Downtown Stuart’s biggest fundraising event, and draws thousands of people to the area each year. Funds from Dancin’ in the Streets support free community events year-round, including Hobgoblins on Main Street, Rock’n Riverwalk and Christmas on Main Street. In the past decade alone, Dancin’ has brought nearly 65,000 people downtown and raised almost a half-million dollars.
“Dancin’ in the Streets brings incredible energy and fun to historic downtown Stuart. While raising funds for local non-profits and free community events in our treasured downtown area” said event chair Bill Moore. “This year we look forward to celebrating thirty years of live music, dancing, talent and community spirit.”
Dancin’ in the Streets is presented by the Downtown Business Association and Stuart Main Street and is sponsored by Coast 101.3, Courthouse Commons, Seacoast Bank, Mulligan’s Beach House Bar & Grill, Southern Eagle Distributing, Snyder Marketing Solutions & Events and Seabreeze Publications.
