Modesto DID Delivers Downtown Modesto

Go Downtown Modesto
By Chris Murphy

2019 is going to be a great year in downtown Modesto. The Modesto Downtown Improvement District has been hard at work since 1965 working with the downtown business community providing a united front on issues affecting the downtown area. The DID is committed to creating a downtown Modesto that year-round is an inviting place to work, visit, or shop and making sure that the operators of the businesses in Downtown Modesto have a voice, and an advocate for promotions and activities that encourage business enhancement. Our on-going mission is the enhancement, promotion, and preservation of the downtown Modesto area.

Downtown Modesto is fun, and putting on events should be easy and the DID is here to help. Whether it is supporting a parade, a festival, concert, or an artwalk, the team at the DID is ready to assist.
