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.
