The San Marcos Main Street Program is calling for nominations for the 8th Annual Love Downtown Awards ceremony. The event will honor businesses and volunteers for their excellence and contributions to downtown San Marcos in 2022. 

Main Street is accepting nominations for Business of the Year, Outstanding New Business and Downtown Legend. The public can pay tribute to their favorite downtown businesses by nominating them for an award at bit.ly/LoveDowntown2023. Nominations will be accepted until February 3, 2023.  

A panel will select honorees based on the public’s nominations and will be announced at the 8th Annual Love Downtown Awards ceremony and across the Main Street Program social media pages at @DowntownSMTX. 

“Over the past year, we have witnessed downtown breathe energy back into our community,” said Downtown Manager Josie Falletta. “We are honored to recognize the businesses, organizations and volunteers who are responsible for making downtown vibrant and encourage the public to support their favorite businesses by nominating them for an award.”

Recipients of the 7th Annual Love Downtown Awards last year included Zelicks Icehouse for Business of the Year, Pho Tran 88 for Outstanding New Business, and Vagabond Vintage for Downtown Legend. Main Street invites the public to connect with them on social media for a chance to win exclusive tickets to the awards ceremony.
