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. Our model is based on the 4 Point Main Street Approach – the 4 Points or Pillars being Economic Vitality, Design, Promotions, and Organization. If all 4 of these pillars are achieved, then revitalization occurs.
Programming includes: Events (full listing on Events page), Façade Improvement Grant Program, Maintenance and Beautification, Flower Program, Farmers Market, Monthly Breakfast Meetings, Facebook and Instagram pages, website, e-newsletter, and CPTED Training.
DAY is a private, nonprofit organization committed to the preservation, development, marketing and promotion of Downtown Yakima through focused efforts to build and maintain public and private partnerships that will foster financial and creative investments in our future while embracing and celebrating our history.
