Support Downtown Businesses With #EverydayHVA!

Keep up with your daily routine for a chance to win downtown gift cards.

How many times a week would you normally go out for a cup of coffee, a happy hour special, or a weekend shopping spree in Downtown Harrisonburg? Calculate the amount of times you would purchase an item, meal, or use any other service downtown in a month and use that money to help support your favorite business by buying a gift card online. We'll draw two winners a week to receive a $25 gift card to the downtown business of their choice! Plus, keep track of your support with awesome coloring pages from local artist Hannah Johnson.

Covid-19 Business Resources

Financial, technical, and community resources and assistance for small businesses

Main Street organizations like Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance have an essential role to play in supporting businesses during this difficult period. As such, we’ll be posting and updating small business resources on this page as they become available. HDR staff is here for you! Together, we will make sure the heart and soul of our community – Downtown Harrisonburg – is here when we come back.

Denton Building Resources

Learn how you can get involved

The Denton Building is being considered for demolition as part of our judicial system’s future expansion. Here are the presentations and a recap from our January 21 Denton Building Community Informational Session with Dr. Carole Nash at Hotel Madison, as well as more information on how you can get involved.

Building a Downtown Together

Get involved and be a part of downtown's success story.

Everyone benefits from a prosperous, vibrant downtown. Our community was a much different place when HDR got started than where it is today.  Downtown’s success comes from having an organization lead the charge and having the support and participation of dedicated customers, partners, business owners, and volunteers. 

Together, we keep downtown’s momentum going. Help continue writing downtown’s success story by getting involved in our organization.

#GiveSsam! Giving Back in the Time of COVID With Mashita

Some people are built for endurance. They are strong and efficient; their minds are sharp and focused, not easily distracted. They can maintain a steady pace for the long haul and put one foot in front of the other despite hills, valleys, blisters, muscle cramps, and thirst.
