Booneville Main Street Association is getting ready for the holidays, kicking off with the annual holiday open house.

Main Street will host the event on Saturday, Nov. 6 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the theme “Merry and Bright.”

“This is always the best event to embrace the Christmas season,” said Main Street Director Lori Tucker.

“Enjoy local shopping, discounts, door prizes, refreshments, custom gift wrapping, and much more as we help you check off that Christmas list. Join us in the City of Hospitality for songs of the season, downtown carriage rides, local dining, and more. It’s a great time to support local in all you do this holiday season,” said Tucker.

People can also register to win Local Loot to spend at a huge variety of local businesses.

For more information on the event contact the Main Street Association office at 662-416-9278 or

Booneville’s Christmas parade is set for 6 p.m. on December 6 with the theme “Whoville in Booneville” celebrating the Dr. Seuss classic. Details on registration will be announced soon.

Tucker said she was overwhelmed by the response to this year’s Fall Festival.

We are overwhelmed with the local support of sponsors, business owners, vendors, and attendees. Booneville’s future is brighter than ever due to the support and we are so thankful. We had an estimated that approximately 4,000 plus attended the event,” said Tucker.

“The day was filled with smiles, fun and laughter as the Main Stage kicked the day off. Music line up was “rocking.” Big thanks to all that participated on the Fall Festival Main Stage. The vendors were so pleased with the attendance throughout the day and the local businesses that participated reported record number sales for the day. Dancers, Juried artist competition, Kids art contest, soapbox derby, 5K run, kids zone, and more offered the day’s entertainment. Headliner, Steve Azar, took the stage at 8 p.m., and left us wanting more concert nights in downtown Booneville. And, we can’t wait to announce the headliner for 2022 Festival,” she said.

Tucker gave credit to the volunteers, city leaders, city employees and others who made the day a success and emphasized events like this are a team effort.

She also thanked the sponsors who supported the event.

“Sponsors are the reason we can host these events in our community. Big shout out to all that sponsored the 2021 Fall Festival. You made so many families happy and we can’t wait to partner with you again,” she said.
