We invite you to be a member of the Escondido Downtown Business Association.  It's free and open to anyone who wants to help support the progress of our downtown.  Membership consists of being added to our email list and, when available, attending Merchant Meetings to give feedback to improve our Downtown.  The more active members we have, the more productive we can be. 


Benefits of membership include business listings, social network marketing, increased exposure, events and special promotions.  Our members work together to make Downtown Escondido an unparalleled place to shop, dine and enjoy the many cultural amenities that our city has to offer.

If you are experiencing issues or challenges that are making it difficult to do business, let us know.  ​As a united voice, we have become a dynamic force in Downtown Escondido.  Our members are involved in many issues that affect our local merchants, and are frequently called upon to be representatives of important issues and decisions.


We hope you will join us in our commitment to foster a healthy and progressive economic climate in our beautiful downtown.


Local business owners work together to enhance our downtown and to improve the experience of everyone who visits Escondido.  The DBA listens to its members/businesses, works to stay abreast of consumer trends, works with police and city staff on security, beautification and economic development issues. 


Join our mailing list to stay up to date of downtown happenings and events that affect you and your downtown.  To get on our list, email us at:


We invite you to join us at our Merchant Meetings.  They are held periodically, at a Grand Avenue restaurant or business.  We will notify you via email about the date and time of the meetings.  Please make sure we have your email address.  It is a great opportunity to meet and get to know your neighbors.  We discuss various issues that affect our businesses and the downtown area.  City staff often sit in and update us on city planning that might affect downtown and answer direct questions from business owners.  Your support is vital to the continued progress of this ever-changing Downtown. 

Contact us to learn how your business can host the next Merchant Meeting.  It's a great way to get more people in your door and to meet your neighbors!


The DBA Board of Directors hold Board Meetings monthly, on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.
