The Elmira Downtown staff and board extends its thanks to our area businesses for for their continued commitment and support in helping us to fulfill our mission of enhancing the environment of Elmira's downtown district through innovative programs, promotions, and partnerships. The goal to foster a sense of community while strengthening the economic vitality of our downtown neighborhood and your support makes that possible.
Elmira Downtown is excited about the positive changes ahead for development in the City of Elmira, both new and rehabilitation of the blueprint of the downtown district. What does this change mean? More people living, working, creating, and spending time in the district, all of these activities generating additional exposure for our sponsors. As we move forward, Elmira Downtown will strengthen our marketing, partnerships, and events to capture the attention of our community and visitors, while creating a memorable experience for all.
Elmira Downtown events have a profound impact on our community and our neighbors - from Wisner Market's "Lunch in the Park", to the Elmira Street Painting Festival, where our downtown streets are transformed into amazing art. Or Alive After Five and the Twin Tiers Jazz Festival, where family and friends gather to listen to music while laughing and reconnecting. Throughout the year, people enjoy these events and more celebrating our small business community, our history and our Arts and Culture. All of these events are happening in downtown Elmira and are made due to the support of businesses like yours.
What's exciting for 2018 The Elmira Street Painting Festival celebrates 11 years in Downtown Elmira. More artists - local and national artists, more music, more partners with cultural organizations, such as Clemens Center, First Arena, and Arnot Art Museum = more visitors. Our visitors view the largest gathering of outstanding pavement artists perform using the road surface as a canvas to develop oversized masterpieces in chalk - transforming our streets into art galleries. This one-of-a-kind regional event happens in downtown Elmira.
The 3rd Annual Alive After Five concert series The inaugural AA5 series was tremendously successful, with record turnouts of community member! People came to enjoy a great night with friends and family, listened to local music and relaxed before their weekend started. The growth of the AA5 is a true reflection of the continued growth throughout the City of Elmira. We are considering additional concert dates throughout the late spring and early summer months for the upcoming season!
