Main Street Pinedale was recently awarded a generous $10,000 grant from the Wyoming Community Foundation to help continue supporting our vision of "an attractive and vibrant downtown that sustains Pinedale as a welcoming place to live, work, and play." The funds received will go directly towards our successful Façade Grant Program that helps support local businesses with improvements to the façade of their buildings, as well as to help provide funds for more art installations in our downtown, along with various other projects.
The funds received from the Wyoming Community Foundation have helped our non-profit continue our mission and vision and we are grateful for their continued support again this year. To-date Main Street Pinedale has been able to award over $50K to Pinedale businesses through our Façade Grant Program to help improve the outside of their buildings – this has included new paint, new signage, new siding, and roofing, etc. We are proud to be able to help our local businesses and give them a little boost to freshen up their exteriors. If you are interested in applying for this grant season, please visit our website at: https://www.mainstreetpinedale.com/facadegrants
Main Street Pinedale is also working in conjunction with the Pinedale Public Art Program to help bring in two new art installations this summer - a new mural and sculpture! The call for artists for both projects can be found here: https://www.pinedalepublicart.com.
Our program will also be hosting the local Farmer’s Market starting in June to September, on Thursday afternoons https://www.mainstreetpinedale.com/farmersmarket, as well as the Rendezvous vendor fair, parade, and street dance, https://www.mainstreetpinedale.com/rendezvous
