Get Involved

The San Marcos Main Street Program is always looking for Downtown Champions who want to make Downtown San Marcos a better place to live, play, shop and work!

Ways to Get Involved


Our volunteers help us provide the best experience to downtown visitors, whether that’s helping during events or beautifying downtown. We’ll even coordinate a unique project for your service organization, if your group is looking for a way to give back to the community. Contact our office to register your interest in volunteering with us.


Connect With Us on Social Media

Our program promotes local businesses and events on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Follow our pages to learn more about what our downtown businesses are doing and how you can support them.

Join the Dream Team

Our Dream Team internship program is creativity in action. Much more than a typical intern, each applicant goes through an interview process and upon approval works on projects based on their "dream job." In an office where our cultural words are coffee, impactful, visionary, inclusive and contagious, dream team members are given an irreplaceable experience in their field. Submit your resume and cover letter to apply.

Shop Small 

Support local businesses any way you can, whether it’s with your dollars or your likes. Buy a gift card, leave a positive review or like a small business social media page to show your support.
