What We Do

What We Do

The Downtown Association of Yakima was formed in 2015 and is a certified member of  Washington Main Street Program and has been  Nationally Accredited  by Main Street America since 2016.

The Downtown Association of Yakima is a non-profit dedicated to the revitalization of the downtown community. We achieve this through a multi-pronged approach that focuses on marketing and events, supportive programs, and acting as a resource for the downtown community. Events range from large, one-day beverage and music festivals to in-business promotions. Programs include the Façade Improvement Grant Program and Maintenance and Beautification, and our four working committees: Organization, Design, Economic Vitality, and Promotions, which all strive to foster revitalization. Acting as a resource can manifest itself in many ways, such as being a liaison between businesses and government, providing a voice for the community, or finding a resource for a stakeholder. Our social media platforms, website, e-newsletter, and monthly Breakfast Meetings serve as communication avenues for providing vital information to the downtown community. We also manage the Downtown Yakima Farmers Market.

Mission Statement
