We are revitalizing Historic Downtown Richmond. Since 2001, we have brought together the community and the Main Street Approach to develop and implement equitable economic development, beautification, arts and entertainment, and wellness programs.

Our Work & Commitment Right Now

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, our 2020 work plan has adjusted to meet the immediate needs of our businesses and residents. We are monitoring the situation closely and following County health orders, actively exploring web-based solutions to host meetings and workshops, supporting our local businesses through a variety of programs, and sharing important information about community services and resources via our digital platforms.

About Celebrate Downtown 2020

In order to ensure the health and safety of everyone who participates in our Celebrate Downtown events — guests, residents, visitors, performers, vendors, businesses, volunteers, and staff — we have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person summer events

As we continue to maintain our Community Resource Directory, support our local businesses survive and build resilience, ensure a complete count for Census 2020, and keep our Neighborhood Ambassador program running, we are also actively exploring virtual and self-guided events. Some ideas that we are currently working on are: virtual Spirit & Soul Festival in September, Art In Windows exhibition featuring works of this time, visit & shop local campaigns, and low-contact beautification activities.
