Thank you to all who attended the 4th annual Downtown Day in Raleigh.  We were able to meet with legislators and thank them for their support of downtowns across the state.  We had just over 120 attend the event.  Please view the 2016-17 Downtown Impact Report by clicking here.



The annual Downtown Day will be held on Halifax Mall in Raleigh on Wednesday, March 28, 2018.  The purpose of Downtown Day is to honor and recognize the work that make North Carolina downtowns, big and small, better in their ability to improve our economic development capacity for our communities across the State.

Downtown Day is an informal lunch social that brings together members of the legislature, downtown professionals, partners and friends.  This year the event will be catered by Stamey’s Barbeque of Greensboro from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm.  Official comments and program will begin at 12:15pm.  Last year we had over 200 people attend the event and we expect the same this year.

Please RSVP by March 23rd to NCDDA’s President-Elect Mary Rose at

Also, please call ahead to your State Senator or Representative and invite them to attend.  Also, consider scheduling a time to share with them about the great things happening in your community and ask for their continued support of North Carolina’s downtowns.

Thank you very much for your work and dedication to North Carolina and your community!
