The Music on Main program connects our communities to resources that celebrate and “amplify” their place within Kansas music. For musicians, Music on Main creates access to equipment, training and performance opportunities, and professional networks. For the public, the Music on Main program creates a connection to local musicians, arts and cultural organizations, as well as venues and events that promote music in Kansas.
It isn’t necessary that you register as a Music on Main Musician to play music on Main Street, however this program exists to provide resources to those who are interested in playing music professionally, especially in downtown Hutchinson. The public guidelines for performances in Hutchinson which use sound amplification can be viewed in the City of Hutchinson’s Community Events Policy, available here.
-Borrow sound equipment for performances like Third Thursday in downtown Hutchinson
-Attend professional development classes, workshops, and events held by industry professionals
-Receive updates about performance and education opportunities
-Perform for industry professionals, talent agents, venue curators, and recruiters
To join, attend a free Music on Main Plugin events.

In 2020, the Hutchinson-Reno County Arts and Humanities (HRAH) Council connected with Hutch Rec to take a closer look at arts and culture in our region – from recreational creative experiences for the youth and public, all the way to industry development that identifies and promotes the economic and cultural impact of the arts, entertainment, and tourism. HRAH and Hutch Rec work together with other local leaders to support preservation, sustainability, and growth of the Heartland, where “our hearts are in the arts.”
The HRAH Council is proud to facilitate the Music on Main Program, made possible by the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (KCAIC). Learn more about the Foxtrot, the HRAH Council, and arts and culture in our region here.
