Welcome back ESU and FHTC students! Join us for a fun night out on Monday, August 21 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm in downtown Emporia! There will be music, prizes and information on student organizations and local businesses and groups!

Grab a passport on the corner of 12th & Commercial Street or at the Emporia Main Street tent in the 800 Block of Commercial Street to win some AMAZING prizes. Each stop on the passport has donated a door prize ( at least $25 in value) to be raffled off through the completed passports.

Event goers need to travel from booth to booth to get their passport signed. At the end of the event, passports can be turned in at the Emporia Main Street tent in the 800 block.

All booths will be located in the 800 & 900 blocks of Commercial Street.

We will draw for prizes the following day via Facebook Live. Winners will need to pick up their prize at the designated location.

Booth Registration

Emporia Main Street members/investors can sign up to showcase their businesses/organizations to ESU and FHTC Students and Faculty.

Participation is a FREE benefit to Emporia Main Street Investors and FHTC/ESU student organizations. We do ask that participants contribute a door prize valued at least $25 (this does not apply to student organizations). Businesses can keep their door prize at their location for the winner to pick up between August 22 - 25th. If you would like to drop your prize off at Emporia Main Street for pick up, please call the office to make arrangements.

We are only doing booth spaces in the 800/900 Blocks of Commercial street this year (there is not an option to set up at your business).
