There are a variety of ways that you can help support the organization that supports downtown Elgin:


Here are just a few of the things DNA was able to accomplish recently through the support of our members:

•Complete overhaul of downtown parking policies to make parking simple, welcoming and free for visitors, employees and residents.
•Recruitment and creation of new jobs in downtown through new business start-ups, relocations and expansions, and facilitating more than $1.25 million in real estate transactions over the past two years.
•New marketing and communications initiatives as well as special events and retail promotions to continue to promote the positive changes happening in our downtown.

Membership is a key component to our annual funding. Please help support the revitalization of downtown Elgin through your DNA membership!


The Downtown Neighborhood Association’s yearly slate of community enhancing special events would not be possible without the generous support of our event sponsors. Special events provide sponsors the unique opportunity to market to our diverse downtown audience through a variety of promotional benefits. DNA’s 2072 calendar of special events include:

•First Fridays
•Harvest Market
•Winter Wonderland
•Small Business Saturday
•Pub Crawl


The Downtown Neighborhood Association is a community coalition of volunteers who are the backbone of all the downtown Elgin special events, programming and initiatives the DNA facilitates. For more information about current volunteer opportunities, email us.
