Since the rebirth of the Business Association in 2012, Mt. Airy CDC has worked to extend its business development and marketing activities throughout the neighborhood.

The Go Mt. Airy Business Association focuses on supporting and sustaining local businesses, as well as inviting new businesses to the area.

Our vision with the Business Association is to help promote, educate, and sustain local businesses. We do that through a number of channels, including networking events, workshops designed specifically for small businesses, promotion through our popular Go Mt. Airy social media channels and newsletter, and more. Mt. Airy CDC has also created festivals and events like Supper Sessions on the Avenue, Moonlight Movies, Autumn on the Avenue, Decemberfest, Shopping Happy Hours, and previously Street Fare and Final-ly Friday, all of which provide key marketing opportunities for businesses while shining a spotlight on the neighborhood.
