Mission Statement

The Escondido Downtown Business Association, a 501(c)6, for the marketing, support, and preservation of the 127 year Old Historic Downtown Business District. Portions of the proceeds from the Escondido Tamale Festival will be used to promote Historic Downtown Escondido as a shopping, dining and entertainment destination. You can learn more about the Escondido DBA at: http://www.downtownescondido.com/


The Escondido Downtown Business Association is comprised of volunteers and Downtown Escondido Business owners. Meetings are held with local merchants to discuss and resolve various improvements and issues in the downtown area. Events are held in order to promote the downtown businesses as well as generate funds to improve the downtown area in matters of beautification, astetics, lighting, parking, safety, etc. A few events are the Escondido Tamale Festival, For The Love of Chocolate, Escondido Chocolate Festival, The Wedge, Escondido Cheese Festival, and the Spring and Fall Escondido Street Fair, aka The Escondido Grand Avenue Festival which is put on in conjunction with Kennedy and Associates.

Volunteers are needed from time to time to help with these events. Please contact us to see where you can best be utilized. We're thankful to our volunteers and excited to work with you!
