About Us

What is the Downtown Arlington Business Association?

We are an association of Downtown Arlington business owners and other individuals who desire to see downtown and all business located within that footprint thrive. D.A.B.A. manages several of the most significant community events that take place in the historic downtown area and offers its members networking and very low cost advertising and sponsorship opportunities throughout the year.

Our monthly meetings offer members the chance to become knowledgeable about everything going on in Historic Downtown, to network with other business owners and to help in the planning of any D.A.B.A activities. We also ensure that members are made aware of the activities of other groups that impact the downtown merchants. Groups like the Arlington Arts Council, The City of Arlington, the American Legion and the Stilly Valley Chamber of Commerce.
