Downtown Proud

is not just a tag line for the Downtown Wichita Falls Development ; it is our focus. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit  and we believe a healthy downtown is the heart of the city; it creates a sense of place for the citizens, businesses, and visitors.

Mission: Through public and private investment we will improve the downtown, entice new business and residents, and grow the economic base of our community and current businesses.

Upcoming Events

Can I take a second to tell you how awesome our crew and community is?!🥰
A week of venue change is A LOT of coordination with 60+ vendors, rentals, bands, sponsors, volunteers, the staff at J.S. Bridwell Agricultural Center, the Wichita Falls Fire Dept., and the different crews it takes to put on a festival.
Our staff and committee has spent a lot of time away from their families this week to bring together other families. It`s hard, but we love what we do and we don`t back down from challenges, we get the job done. We always try and remember to step back during the event and take in the view of months of planning, change after change, and all the roadblocks we got past to get there.
We have received so many encouraging messages from other event planners and nonprofits that also throw events. That fuels us, y`all!! Thank you.
❤️So, when you see those red and white baseball tees that say "Crew 2024" on the back, please thank them. This event is not possible without so many that volunteer their time to help us!!
If you haven`t yet, get those tickets and we will see y`all tomorrow!! Laissez les bons temps rouler!!🦞
If you made it this far... thank you. Enjoy $2 off your ticket when you order online by using code: CREW2024
