The Oklahoma Main Street Center, a Division of the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, holds an annual awards banquet each year where the accomplishments of local Main Street communities in 23 categories of community and economic development are recognized.

Awards cover each of the Main Street Program’s 4-Point Approach to local economic revitalization including:

  • Organization
  • Promotion
  • Design
  • Economic Restructuring

In addition, the “Main Street Community of the Year Award” is also given out to a deserving community. This award recognizes quality in program activities and commitment to Main Street principles.

Board members from each community are recognized as well as the local crowning achievement.
