MDA Member Socials/Events

Networking Socials

With two networking socials a month, there is always an opportunity to meet other members. Our Luncheons on the second Tuesday of the month are a great way to network while hearing information from other members. Downtown on Tap, the last Tuesday of the month, gives you the opportunity to visit a member business and network in a more casual setting.

Membership Luncheon

Held at a different member business the second Tuesday of every month from 12 to 1 pm. Luncheons provide networking and promotional opportunities and feature informative speakers on topics affecting Downtown businesses and the community.

Downtown On Tap

Held at a different member business on the last Tuesday of every month from 5-7pm. This is a great opportunity to socialize, network, enjoy drinks and appetizers, and showcase your business.

Large Social Events

The MDA offers three large events a year exclusively for members.


In July, we throw a huge BBQ in Caras Park to celebrate the summer in Downtown. Members are encouraged to bring the entire family for socializing and down-home cooking by our members!

Holiday Party

Our Christmas Party has been a can’t-miss event for many years. It is our holiday social event where hundreds of members come together to mingle and partake in the holiday spirits.

Annual Awards

Our Annual Awards Banquet, held in January, recognizes Downtown Champions from the previous year.
