Downtown Day began in 2014 as a way to talk about what could be done to grow Downtown Grand Forks. The DDA began operating as a non-profit organization in May 2014 with the hiring of Stacey Majkrzak as executive director. The event is now a way to recap the past year and glance at what the vision is for the future of Downtown Grand Forks.

The GFDDA’s vision is a downtown that is stable and growing; encourages economic development and business diversity; is walkable and pedestrian friendly; and is safe and clean. This is a downtown in which business, residents and visitors can take pride, visit frequently, and use to its fullest potential.
