About the DTA
The New Braunfels Downtown Association is a non-profit group comprised of businesses, service professionals, property owners, civic organizations and interested individuals. Our common goal is to market our uniquely historic downtown as a destination to shop, play, stay and work. Our Association is a thriving and productive part of the New Braunfels’ community.
Plan and participate in year-round events to promote customer traffic in the downtown area and create business and goodwill for members.
Provide a website which lists all member businesses, as well as link to their respective websites. There is a Downtown Association Facebook and email sign-up form.
Provide advertising and promotional opportunities to feature our historic downtown as a destination.
Work with the City and County governmental agencies to positively address challenges that accompany the growth of New Braunfels.
Keep members current through educational programs on issues affecting downtown businesses and the community through monthly meetings and email communications.
The Downtown Association is a network of people working to build a successful, productive downtown. We encourage you to be a part of the New Braunfels Downtown Association.
