Our downtown is not only a place; it is a symbol of the economic health of our community, the quality of life of the people who live here, and the pride we take in our city. Downtown Delaware is a hometown, a gathering place, a destination and entertainment venue, it is literally and figuratively the heart of the community.
Main Street Delaware’s mission is to create a vibrant downtown
experience. We do so by hosting events in our downtown such as First Fridays, Farmers’ Markets, Summer on Winter Concert Series, Home for the Holidays weekend and much more! These events have been know to draw as many as fifteen thousand people, and have kick-started Delaware as a destination location for all ages and walks of life.
Recognized as one of the top four by the American Planning
Association’s “Great Neighborhoods” in 2019. Get involved in by becoming a partner of Main Street Delaware!
