events and placemaking

While Mt. Airy CDC has several program areas designed to help local residents address specific needs, our most public-facing program is our series of public community events. Go Mt. Airy Supper Sessions, Moonlight Movies, Monday Markets, and Autumn on the Avenue provide opportunities for local families to come together and spend time outdoors in Mt. Airy.

At Lovett Park, Mt. Airy CDC has a responsibility to activate the centrally-located, one-acre public space with free community events. Through the Reimagining the Civic Commons initiative (supported by the Knight Foundation), that’s meant trying things like new public furniture and new community events—and hosting public meetings and surveys to find out what works and what doesn’t.
