Working Together To Create Amazing Events

The board, staff and volunteers of Downtown Eau Claire, Inc. work year-round to create and execute exciting events, each with a different goal and target audience. By creating nine major events every year, we bring thousands of visitors to Downtown and showcase the amazing businesses and community we all love.

Major Events and Festivals

Downtown Eau Claire, Inc. works throughout the year to create major festivals and events that attracts thousands of residents and visitors. Our flagship event, the International Fall Festival, brings an estimated 10,000 people to the South Barstow District in just one day. And we’re excited to present the inaugural Family Day in Downtown! This jam-packed afternoon will highlight all of the aspects that make living and raising a family in Eau Claire such a wonderful experience.

Unique Experiences

Even when we go small, we go big! With your sponsorship of our annual fundraising events and experiences, we are able to work every day to support our businesses and community. A Grand Evening on the Bridge gives Downtown’s finest the opportunity to dine al fresco over the Chippewa River. The Downtown Eau Claire Awards honor the individuals and businesses that advance Downtown and support the mission of Downtown Eau Claire, Inc. We hope you’ll join us!

Why Your Support Is Vital

Thanks to the support of our sponsors, our biggest festivals and events are FREE and open to the public. This allows us to give back to the community and serve audiences in a way that would be impossible with paid events. Your dollars go directly to supporting the events and year-round efforts of Downtown Eau Claire, Inc. With nearly half our funding coming from events and sponsors, your support is vital to helping us advance Downtown and serve our community.
