Welcome to Downtown Elon!
The Town of Elon is proud of its downtown and the bustling shops and restaurants that make Downtown Elon their home. With a focus on increasing the activity in downtown, the Town of Elon began a journey to becoming a Main Street Community and achieved that goal in July 2018. Every year shows an increase in new events for the entire family.
Our vision: Downtown Elon is powered by a diverse community of families, professionals, students and retirees. It serves as the center of life-long learning and creative activities for Alamance County, that is enhanced by the energy of Elon University, locally owned restaurants and shops, and a collection of visual art.
Our mission is to optimize downtown opportunities and lead the efforts in and beautification of the downtown district.
