The City of Laurel’s 43rd Annual Main Street Festival begins with a parade at 9 a.m. and continues until 4 p.m. on May 11, 2024. 

More than 50 parade participants including cool cars, walkers, and marchers will greet and entertain festival goers on Main Street between 6th and 8th Street.  This year’s Grand Marshal is Jane Abel, a valued member of the Laurel Board of Trade. The event features more than 200 vendors, numerous community groups, first responders, and lots of fun for the children.
