Thomaston Main Street


2021 Christmas Parade & Market


The Main Street Program is coordinated by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and is designed to organize activities within downtown Thomaston to promote revitalization. The Main Street Program is a non-profit (501©(3) organization that works closely with the Thomaston Downtown Development Authority and the Historic Preservation Commission in developing action plans for the revitalization of the Downtown area.  

Vision: Downtown Thomaston is the historic core of the community, serving as the seat of government, business, and service for Thomaston and Upson county. A place where unique and exciting businesses should flourish through historic preservation, revitalization and economic development. This is accomplished by focusing on design, promotions, economic vitality, and organization. Our vision is to affirm and maintain downtown Thomaston as the social, cultural, economic, and historic focal point of our community.

Mission: The mission of the Thomaston Main Street Program is to promote, preserve and enhance the historic charm and integrity of the community and to reinforce the downtown as the city's heartbeat by utilizing the 4 - Point Approach of the National Main Street Program. 

Design: Our mission is to create an inviting, aesthetically appealing, and safe downtown for both residents and non-residents to enjoy.

Promotions: Our goal is to provide Thomaston with a unique experience through a combination of arts, entertainment, and festivals. 

Economic Vitality: Our mission is to repurpose vacant properties to help stimulate downtown business growth through redevelopment and investment.

Organization: To cover all 4 points of the Main Street approach by collaborating with the Downtown Development Authority, Historic Preservation Commission, the City of Thomaston and other public, private, and non-profit community stakeholders. Additionally, to promote and strengthen downtown Thomaston by providing active support, leadership, incentives, resources, and opportunities that result in historic preservation, beautification, economic growth, and development.
