Main Street Association of Louisville plans 40-day celebration for 40th anniversary

Louisville, Ky. – To celebrates its 40-year history, the Main Street Association of Louisville announced it will produce 40 days of programming held in the cultural and business center of downtown.

To mark the occasion, the organization also rebranded itself with a new logo, tagline and website. The new tagline, “Literally Everything to Do,” reflects the abundance of entertainment and business options on Main Street.

“Where else in the world can you go and on one street find a world-class boxing museum (the Muhammad Ali Center), amazing restaurants, the best and biggest baseball bat around, an exciting stadium, bourbon by the barrels, condos and office buildings — all co-existing as the entrance point to all of downtown?” said Steve Eggers, Main Street Association’s volunteer board president and partner at K. Norman Berry Architect Associates.

“We have long focused on the beautiful architecture and amazing history of our street’s buildings. But, now, we’re also poised to really talk about, support, and partner with the amazing things happening inside of these buildings and because of these buildings,” said Main Street Association executive director Robin Miller.
