Downtown Estacada focuses on the heart of the community, bringing its vitality to the small-town atmostphere. Formerly the Estacada Development Association, formed in 2000, Downtown Estacada was commissioned on January 1, 2018. Working frequently in cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce, the Arts Commission, Parks and Recreation and other groups, Downtown Estacada commissioners also work with business partners to enhance economic vitality and encourage tourism in the downtown. One strong focus is community engagement and includes some events -- big and small -- such as Estacada Uncorked, 4th of July Parade, Harvest Festival, and Christmas Tree Lighting in addition to business promotions. Winning this contest will allow Estacada to build a strong promotion and communication system so everyone can be involved in their community.
