In February, Denton Main Street Association (DMSA) invites locals and visitors to make a big impact in a small way by supporting small businesses in Downtown Denton, as well as support the local non-profits Lovepacs and Our Daily Breadwith donations of items they need to support students in need in Denton ISD.

This month, you and your loved ones will have a chance to shop, save, and celebrate each other and our businesses all in one place. Make Downtown Denton your go-to destination this month for your in-person, to-go or online shopping, dining and entertainment. Donations for Lovepacs and Our Daily Bread can be accepted at participating locations (see list below).

DMSA is dedicated to the revitalization and preservation of historic downtown Denton - a district where many of our local small businesses engage with neighbors, visitors and fellow business owners. 

In fact, we’ve got one of the best selections of local businesses in Texas — it’s true, they voted on it! Take a trip to dine downtown, check out live music, and the many shopping options as you treat yourself in the name of the new year. Let’s share the love with these businesses who’ve shared their love with us and support our community with their own contributions.

“February’s Share The Love promotion put on by Denton Main Street is a way to shine a spotlight on our local businesses and give back to your community at participating businesses in downtown. Everyone seems to know about our great restaurants and bars, but we have some new retail shops that have opened recently. We are proud to have them as members and we look forward to seeing everyone downtown in February!”
