‘Making it Happen’ means believing in the power of community.  It’s understanding that change happens when a community believes in itself. 

It’s a new day in Downtown Lynchburg. 

The heart of our city is growing, and fast becoming a thriving urban scene with much to see and do. With new restaurants opening every month, events happening every weekend, and over 1,200 residents choosing to live in the district, it is clear that Downtown has truly hit its stride. 

The momentum is strong.  Let’s keep moving forward. 

Downtown Lynchburg Association (formerly Lynch’s Landing Foundation) has played a crucial role in spurring these efforts and is committed to keeping the momentum going. For more than twenty years, we have worked to strengthen Downtown Lynchburg through beautification efforts, community events, volunteer clean-ups, public art projects, downtown business promotion, and more. Click here to learn more about what we do

But there is always more work to be done.

We invite you to become a supporter of Downtown Lynchburg Association, ensuring our continued ability to create a strong, vibrant, and welcoming downtown with a unique and historic character.
