Main Street Texarkana Prepares For Third Dine on The Line


On October 7, 2017, you’ll have the opportunity to eat dinner right on the street that makes Texarkana famous at Main Street Texarkana’s largest fundraiser of the year, Dine on the Line.

This third annual event brings the community together for an evening of dinner and music right in the middle of State Line Avenue, where half of the diners are in Arkansas and half are in Texas. This year music will be provided by the Dusty Rose Band and dinner will be an original creation from downtown restaurants Pecan Point and Verona, with a special meal just for kids from Johnny B’s.

“We’re very excited to be offering 100% downtown cuisine this year,” said Main Street Executive Director Ina McDowell. “We know Pecan Point and Verona will come up with something phenomenal, and Johnny B’s is going to make an awesome plate for kids.”

But it’s not just about dinner. The family-friendly event will also feature music, pop-up vendors, and state line fun for kids, like a dinosaur dig, bike riding, bubbles, and more. Just before sunset guests will be asked to gather around the table for a toast to our two cities and their shared downtown at this event like no other.

Tickets are already available and planners are encouraging you to buy early. “One big change we have this year is that dinner tickets are available by presale only,” said event planner Hollis Boyette.

Tickets will be available through September 30 and can be purchased online at Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for kids 12 & under. All proceeds from the event go toward Main Street Texarkana’s mission – the restoration and revitalization of downtown Texarkana.
