What is MainStreet Oceanside?

MainStreet Oceanside had its beginnings in the Downtown Business Association, formed in the early 1990’s as a loosely organized group of business people who met on a regular basis to discuss common concerns. By the end of the decade, as business conditions improved, the group decided to elevate the Downtown Business Association to a more organized approach to downtown issues and applied for state recognition as a certified California Main Street city. Official status was granted in July 2000 and MainStreet Oceanside Inc. was formed as a 501(c)6 non-profit corporation.

How is MainStreet Oceanside funded?

Initially funded by a financial committment from the City of Oceanside, MainStreet Oceanside is a completely self-supporting non-profit corporation. Revenues are earned by the organization through the operation of the Farmers Market, the Sunset Market and the Beach Services Program. Revenues are supplemented with advertising sales, membership dues, grants, sponsorships and donations.
