Rain on Main is an annual event held to increase awareness of water quality and conservation in Carmel and to raise funds for water education signage in Carmel Clay Parks.
Local artists transform 65 gallon urn style rain barrels into one of a kind pieces of art. The barrels are displayed in the Arts and Design District along Main Street (August 9-17) and the public is invited to vote for their favorite in a People's Choice contest on Facebook. In addition to the People's Choice competition, there is a judged art competition component. The barrels are evaluated by a panel of experts and the first, second, and third place artists receive cash prizes! The barrels will also be featured at the August 17th Carmel Farmers Market.
