Whether dancing in the street during one of our Friday Night Live events, exploring the twinkling wonder of Belmont transformed for Christmas Village, uniting as a community during COVID-19 relief efforts or enjoying an activated downtown space, with enhanced community use, you'll find us behind the scenes.

Through our events and community engagement efforts, we aim to support and sustain Belmont's downtown districts as the central place for commerce and community. 

Whether "Keeping The Lights On" and our community safe during COVID-19 or enacting and envisioning more ways for connection and a sense of community via our Friday Night Live series, Christmas Village or a future Belmont Dog Park, we are always actively seeking ways to make our downtown districts more useful and engaging for residents and visitors alike.

This work cannot be accomplished alone.  We thank our many volunteers, contributors, sponsors and supportive City Staff and Elected Officials who join us in making so many of these events and efforts possible.

About the DBDA 

Community Events and Engagement

The Downtown Belmont Development Association (DBDA), a non-profit 501(c)(3), supports its mission of keeping Belmont's three Districts (Historic Downtown, Chronicle and River) useful and central as the beating heart of the community by organizing, enacting and holding event related community activities that encourage residents and visitors to come together and explore and enjoy all that Belmont has to offer. Much of this work is planned and organized under the DBDA's Promotions Committee, while visioning for more permanent enhancements and public activation of Belmont's physical spaces are planned and organized under the DBDA's Design Committee.
