Downtown Kalamazoo Retail & Restaurant Association
The Downtown Kalamazoo Retail and Restaurant Association (DKRRA) is a private, non-profit organization that exists to be a unified voice in the promotion of the restaurant, retail, service, and entertainment businesses of Downtown Kalamazoo.
For nearly a decade, the DKRRA has worked to enhance our position as the premier Downtown in West Michigan and ensure that the collective best interests of our businesses are served. We do this in a variety of ways including:
- Providing a political voice for issues that affect us
- Hosting Downtown-based promotions and community fundraising events like Style Stroll, Restaurant Week, and Holiday Wassailing, designed to increase traffic and exposure
- Providing a communication network of Downtown business owners and managers with networking, business strengthening and idea-sharing opportunities such as our bi-monthly general membership meetings,
our annual Connecting with Customers conference and our Small Business Roundtables
