Oktoberfest is Saline Main Street’s biggest fundraiser every year.
We needed to make this change in order to secure the success of our event and our organization as a whole. We originally began charging $5 admission over 8 years ago! Expenses have increased considerably since then including the cost of tents, security, and beer.
How are we funded, you ask? We rely on three sources of revenue: event income, corporate sponsorships and financial support from the City of Saline. While our support from local businesses in community has remained steady, our support from the City of Saline was reduced by $20,000 in June. This represents 10% of our total budget.
What do we do with our funds? In a nutshell, we help create a thriving and vibrant downtown Saline. We work with the State of Michigan to bring grants and other funding opportunites to local businesses, we promote quality events, we are in charge of the banners and flowers downtown, and so much more. We have a lot of work that still needs to be done to reach our Vision of Saline for 2028. And we thank you for all of your support.
Thank you for supporting Saline Main Street and the Saline community as a whole.
