Michigan Downtown Day
Saturday, September 26, 2020
For the Love of Downtown
Saturday, September 26, 2020, has been proclaimed “Downtown Day” by Governor Whitmer and downtown Charlevoix and the Michigan Downtown Association (MDA) want to celebrate!
Understanding that now more than ever Michigan residents need to support downtowns and the businesses within by shopping, dining, attending an event, or volunteering, the MDA contacted the Governor’s office and requested that Saturday, September 26, 2020, be declared Downtown Day. The organization received the official Proclamation, signed by Governor Whitmer, earlier this month.
The MDA encourages community members to visit a downtown on September 26 and enjoy its shops, restaurants, and recreational and cultural aspects.
“The MDA believes Downtown Day will bring positive attention and recognition to small businesses and downtown cores,” Dana Walker, director of the MDA, said.
