Downtown Day

Downtown Day
Saturday, September 25, 2021

For the second year in a row, the fourth Saturday of September has been proclaimed “Downtown Day” by Governor Whitmer with the initiative beginning requested by the Michigan Downtown Association (MDA).

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 25, 2021, 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 25 and enjoy its shops, restaurants, and recreational and cultural aspects.  Many MDA member communities have special events planned to celebrate the special day.
