Most of the entertainment will take place on the west side of the complex. (Williams Dr.) Parking can be found throughout the shopping center.

“Taste of Main “is being held to bring awareness of what Main Street Square has to offer. The event runs from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m. It’s a family-friendly event and free of charge.

Main Street Square, on Williams Drive in Roscoe, was built by Dan Hayne Construction about 18 years ago. The upscale shopping center has gone through many changes since that time.

It is currently under the management of Windmill Properties.

The 40,000 sq ft complex is fully occupied with an interesting mix of businesses:

Country Financial Insurance; First Community Credit Union; Elite Dental; Meraki Salon Studio; Skin Deep Body Art and Beauty Studio; Gambino Realtors; Mama Sue’s Deli and Slots; Perfectly Seasoned Catering; Stateline Chamber of Commerce; Crazy Llama Brewery; Laundry Bin; Rebecca Weaver - Massage Therapy and Sensory Therapeutic; Studio 12 Pilates; Edward Jones; Lifestyle Chiropractic; Mathnasium; Sexson Orthodontics; Midwest Construction; Benny’s Slots and The 3 R’s Learning Materials Center.

“Taste on Main” is just the first of several events to come. EAT ONE 5 is already making plans for Hometown Holidays in December. This year, the annual Christmas celebration will feature a visit from Santa, music, games, food trucks, and entertainment in both downtown Roscoe and Main Street Square.
