What Does FVDA Do?

Well, the simple answer is … Fuquay-Varina Downtown “Grows Community”.

“Community” is many things.   It is the citizens of Fuquay-Varina coming together for a large event as we gather with friends and grow relationships.   It is bringing people together to help fulfill a need.  It is supporting the local business community.  It is growing as a diverse community by identifying with different cultures through art and other initiatives.  It is building on the character of what makes Fuquay-Varina special.

Our Mission

Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association (FVDA) promotes the thriving business and residential historic districts. We promote preservation, educate the public, support the business environment and grow community.

So why the word “Downtown”?

We believe “Downtown” is the heartbeat of a community.   We believe it is the window into our town’s identity and is the place that we should all protect.   It is “home”.   It is a crucial component in growing a community.
