The Historic Downtown Littleton Merchants Association (HDLM) in partnership with the Littleton Business Chamber and thanks to a generous grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation, Weekends on Main continues this year from May 7 through October 30. Contact HDLM for more information about Weekends on Main.
HDLM has been monitoring the number of downtown visitors each weekend and assessing the week-to-week success as well as the success of Fridays and Saturdays individually.
With these evaluations, they have decided to close the streets on Friday nights only, from 5 to 11 p.m. (The street closure will be 4 p.m. to midnight for set-up and tear down.) On the second Saturday of each month, Main Street will remain closed until 11 p.m. for "Second Saturdays" an Artisan Market.
Here are some other activities that visitors can enjoy in Downtown Littleton this summer:

The Weekends on Main concept was created in 2020 to help restaurants obtain additional seating outside to compensate for the seating lost inside due to social-distancing requirements.
This event was the winner of the 2021 Downtown Colorado Inc. Governor's Award for Downtown Excellence in the Pandemic Response category.
