The Twain on Main Festival is a free admission street festival, celebrating the works of Hannibal’s Hometown Hero, Mark Twain. We have art, craft and merchandise vendors from across the country attending year after year.

The food and beverage offerings are vast and are made fresh right in front of you. There will be entertainment for young and old alike, from street magicians, story tellers, children’s games and much more. You’ll even get to meet Mark Twain and two of his famous characters, Tom and Becky. Free fun for the whole family awaits. For the adults in the crowd, we have a wine garden, featuring some of the best the Midwest has to offer. Come, sit among the trees, enjoy some wine and even buy some to take home.




Step back into time with three different areas featuring Mark Twain’s famous novels:

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Roughing It

The Prince and the Pauper

Join in the fun with music, games, and performances in the three entertainment areas celebrating Mark Twain’s classic books: relive Twain’s childhood in “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”, go back in time to the Renaissance era with “The Prince and the Pauper”, and head out to the Wild West as Twain himself did in “Roughing It”.
