Historic Main Street is lined with specialty boutiques, antique shops, art galleries, home furnishing stores, and restaurants. On every block you see renovation and renewal of some of the city's beautiful 19th century buildings, popular places for loft living.
Heritage Park on Main Street is the hot spot for many of Denison's outdoor events. Music on Main is favored by many on those relaxing Friday nights during the summer months.
On other nights, families bring their chairs and popcorn to enjoy the under the stars canopy as they watch an outdoor movie with the family.
Many festivals from spring to fall are also planned around the downtown area that are favorites to many, including Kids' Festival, The Saints and Sinners-Doc Holliday Festival, Red River Railroad Museum Anniversary, Bark and Paws, Denison Culture of Arts Festival, Denison Fall Fest, Monsters on Main and Dia de los Muertos....just to name a few. In the winter is yummy Chilifest!
