The Downtown and Community Revitalization Department is supporting new events in order to create a consistent attraction to the Downtown area and bring more life to the sidewalk. In 2009, the Department sponsored two new festivals, celebrating motorcycles and Armenian culture, during two consecutive weekends on the Fulton Mall. Both events are planned to repeat in 2010 and on an annual basis.
Through a partnership with the Downtown Association of Fresno, the Department aims to fill the year with exciting downtown activities. All events will be centered on Downtown Fresno’s Fulton Mall, the site of Fresno’s historic “Main Street,” and adjoining Chukchansi Park. The Department and the City are also exploring the idea of transferring management of the Mall from the Parks Department to Downtown and Community Revitalization.
You can help make these downtown events a success — not just by attending, but by investing as a sponsor or volunteer. For more information, contact Elliott Balch, City of Fresno Downtown Revitalization Manager, by email or at (559) 621-8350.
