A SECOND Annual Event!
Historic Main Street in Downtown Danbury will be a street festival for the day as we line the way with all kinds of vendors, selling their art or artisan made products. Our local businesses will take over the sidewalks, delightful live entertainment will be going on, and people from Greater Danbury and beyond will be sharing in the excitement of the day! PLUS there are two other BIG events happening on this day as well: Opening Day of the Farmers’ Market AND The Steam Fair!! Downtown will be the place to be on June 23!!
Downtown is fortunate to have many organizations that contribute to the excitement of CityCenter Danbury. We are able to make a greater impact in the Downtown District with support from Property Owners, Sponsors, Businesses, Non-Profits, Cultural Arts, and Volunteers.
CityCenter Danbury has been a major player in many projects that have transformed downtown over the last few decades. The Danbury Downtown Special Services District began its revitalization efforts in 1989. As a member of the National Historic Preservation and the Connecticut Main Street Center, CityCenter follows the four a (4) principles of design, organization, promotion and economic restructuring. We strive to accelerate the renewal of the city’s urban core, with quality of life as the underlying theme: building a lasting constituency for downtown; supporting investors, retailers and tenants while retaining those already downtown and making downtown clean, safe and attractive. A public entity governed by a 16-person board of directors, property assessments within the downtown boundaries and sponsorship’s fund CityCenter Danbury’s initiatives for planning, public improvements and operations, marketing and promotions and business development.
Today we are experiencing a tipping point and true momentum in the vitality of Downtown. Residential and Commercial rents are affordable. One Kennedy Flats reflects a 70 million dollar investment to our downtown offering 365 market rate apartments. Naugatuck Community College (NVCC) is expanding and maintaining its downtown presence. Western Connecticut State University, the Paul Mitchell School, and Ridley-Lowell are all right at our doorsteps.
Local and regional bands rock the Bandshell with the Summer Series – Concerts on the Green and the Greater Taste of Danbury. CityCenter Danbury also presents Halloween on the Green, Light the Lights, Thumbs up Thursday and supports others running events downtown. The Palace Theater and the Heirloom Arts Theater are also bringing premium entertainment to our urban core.
Downtown Danbury is home to the Farmers’ Market, multiple Cultural Centers, The Palace Danbury, The Danbury Library, Heirloom Arts Theatre, A Common Ground, Escape the Arts, Danbury Museum and Historical Society, Danbury Railway Museum, the Danbury Music Centre, The Cultural Alliance of Western CT, Danbury Ice Arena, Westerners Baseball, the Danbury Innovation Center, and much more. We are all partners in a vibrant Downtown.
