The Douglasville Downtown Development Authority’s (DDA) Downtown Recognition Banquet will be Oct. 2, at 6:30 p.m. The location will be the Downtown Conference Center. We are excited to announce that this year’s Georgia Power sponsored event will feature Georgia Cities Foundation “Renaissance Award” recipient and historic renovation specialist, Ron Goss, as the keynote speaker. Dinner will be provided by downtown’s newest addition, Carole Parks Catering.
Goss will be followed by the Downtown Awards ceremony that will showcase the work of the DDA committee volunteers and business owners, as well as, recognize outstanding economic development in the Downtown business district.

Tickets for this event are $15 general admission. Tickets can be purchased at the Douglasville Welcome Center, online at www.ci.douglasville.ga.us, or at the door. For more information contact the Main Street Manager at 678-715-6092 or email at email@example.com.
