2013 bannersMainStreet Cleveland is a non profit organization dedicated to the revitalization and promotion of historic downtown Cleveland, Tennessee.

Cleveland, TN has a proud heritage going back more than 160 years. It’s a fun place to visit and a great place to live. With so much to do and enjoy, everyone feels at home in Downtown Cleveland.

An accredited Tennessee Main Street Community since 1990, downtown Cleveland has more to offer - more activities, more shops, more homes, more offices and more life.

MainStreet Cleveland is composed of dedicated citizens, business owners, government officials and other friends who recognize the important role a vital downtown plays in preserving and furthering our community's identity, spirit and economy.

Remember all the delicious downtown dining choices:

Thank you to all of those who attended our “Back Alley Gallery” test site on March 8 as part of the Thriving Communities Design Thinking grant project. More than 50 people came out to view the project and provided feedback. Responses where overwhelmingly positive about transforming the underutilized alley spaces into charming art galleries. The overall three-year goal is for Downtown Cleveland “to be known as an emerging arts, culture and innovation district.” This project is only the first many activities and actions required to reach the goal.

May 2016 Membership Meeting: Join us on Monday May 16, 12:00, at the Elks Lodge. Lunch buffet is $11.
