Historic Downtown Melbourne



Downtown Melbourne is the most charming part of the City with a history that dates back to the 1800’s. In recent years it has become the destination for locals and travelers, alike, who are looking for a quaint and historic town for shopping, dining, and entertainment. The Melbourne Main Street program was designed to enhance economic growth in the community through cultural events and social activities. We strive to promote the community identity as the “preferred destination” for quality shopping, dining, and entertainment.  

Melbourne Main Street presents the Downtown Melbourne Botanical Fest on Saturday, March 5th located outside at the corner of US 1 and New Haven Avenue in the 1900 Building parking lot.  

The Downtown Melbourne Botanical Fest is a FREE family-friendly event that attracts visitors from the region and features lavish landscape designs, garden sculptures, flowers and plants, trees and shrubs, unique gifts, garden-themed art, great food, and much more!
Parking is available at the many City of Melbourne public parking lots including the free parking garage. The Parking Map can be located on the City website.
