According to Main Street Searcy executive director Amy Burton, committee members and event volunteers are making preparations to welcome more than 25,000 visitors into the downtown area for the 11th annual event. It has become known for featuring live music, performances, merchandise vendors and concessions.

“Over the past decade, Get Down Downtown has welcomed nationally-known recording artists along with local musicians. We have such a wide range of festival attendees every year so we strive to bring a diverse mix of music genres so there truly is something for everyone during the event,” Burton said.
