Fayetteville Main Street and the Fayetteville/Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce present the second Slawburger Festival in Fayetteville, Tennessee- home of the Famous Slawburger. We have such a rich history with the unique "slawburger" and the festival serves as a way to share those stories. Create new memories or revisit old ones from the past. Come visit us on April 16, 2016 at the Historic Fayetteville Downtown Square for the 2nd Annual Slawburger Festival. For more information, click here.

Old buildings. New attitudes.

Fayetteville Main Street has been an active and vital part of the Community since 1990. Main Street revitalization is a comprehensive, incremental, self-help economic strategy that focuses on developing public-private partnerships in order to enhance community livability and job creation while maintaining the historic character of the district.

The Main Street Approach

The Main Street approach is not a quick fix, but rather one based upon the Four-Point Approach of the National Main Street Center.
Design means getting our downtown into top physical shape. Capitalizing on our assets such as historic buildings and the traditional downtown layout is just part of the story. Main Street also strives to create an inviting atmosphere through parking areas, signs, sidewalks, street lights and landscaping.
Promotion means selling the image and promise of Main Street to all prospects. By marketing the district’s unique characteristics through advertising, retail promotional activities, special events and marketing campaigns. Fayetteville Main Street hopes to forge a positive image to shoppers, investors, new businesses and visitors. (Please refer to the back page of this brochure for a Calendar of Events for Fayetteville Main Street.)
Organization means getting everyone working towards common goals. The tough work of building consensus and cooperation among the groups that have an important stake in our downtown can be eased by using the common-sense formula of a volunteer-driven program and an organizational structure of board and committees.
Economic Restructuring means finding new or better purposes for Main Street enterprises. Helping existing downtown businesses expand and recruiting new ones. Fayetteville Main Street converts unused space into productive property and sharpens the competitiveness of its businesses.
