South Main Trolley Night Is Back!

South Main Trolley Night Is Back!

After a winter hiatus, the South Main Trolley Night is back for 2023! "Trolley Night" is the last Friday of the month when the shops and galleries host open houses, usually with some live music, free drinks and snacks, and special openings or events.  Restaurants and bars will also dish out specials for the occasion.

It's a time to explore the South Main Arts District and find all those places you didn't know were open. If the weather is nice, you can expect a pretty good crowd.

Pre-pandemic, Trolley Night included free trolley rides but now they're normal prices (one dollar). While the Trolley is a great, fun way to get from one end of Main Street to the other, for Trolley Night I actually recommend taking a walk so you can wander in and out of places, talk to people, and pick a new place to eat. 

I always go to the @southmainmem Instagram account or Facebook page to see the specifics for each month, whether that's an art opening at Urevbu Contemporary Gallery, a DJ at Central Station, or music at South Main Sounds. I always love starting at Stock & Belle. For the first trolley night they're hosting a Women's Month Pop-Up featuring a bunch of women-owned shops.

Check out this Explore the South Main Arts District guide or some of our features on these beloved South Main spots: Primas Bakery, Paper & Clay, and Earnestine & Hazel's.
