Located in the heart of downtown Rapid City, Main Street Square is the unofficial community gathering place. Shops like Alternative Fuel Coffee House, The Silver Lining Creamery, and Who’s Toy House all line around the square. Abstract sculptures surround the square bringing more art to the scenic views of downtown. There are patio tables with umbrellas scattered around for parents to watch their children play and diners to enjoy food outside on a beautiful day.
In the summer, children can play at the interactive fountains, which operate daily from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. between late May and mid-October. In the winter, the grass area of Main Street Square is turned into an ice rink surrounded by christmas lights during the holidays – usually opening in mid-November. Figure skates and hockey skates are available for rent, and helmets and ice walkers are available free of charge.
Main Street Square features more than 200 events each year. Popular annual events include the summer concert series, Movies Under the Stars, Cruiser Car Show & Street Fair, Art & Wine Festival, [Love]² Bridal Fair, Great Downtown Pumpkin Festival, Eggstravaganza, Scare in the Square, the Holiday Fair & Winter Market, and many more!
