Special Events

Downtown First is part of a national movement!

Because Downtown First is a member of the American Independent Business Alliance (www.amiba.net), Downtown First businesses will have the opportunity to participate in two extremely popular and successful national events for local businesses:

America Unchained!

Annually on November 20th

On November 20, communities around continent will be urged to "unchain" for just that one day—to maximize the impact of their dollars and inject potentially millions more into the local economy through joining other residents to do their shopping, dining out and other business only with locally-owned independent businesses (from www.amiba.net).

Celebrate Your Independents Week

Annually, during the week of the fourth of July

As we honor national heritage and liberty, we also celebrate our nation's locally-owned independent businesses who have given so many citizens opportunity and underpinned and underwritten community life and prosperity. It's a time, too, to consider the independent decision-making ability each of us possesses to choose the future of the place we make our home (from www.amiba.net).
