Welcome to Downtown Eatonton!

Downtown Eatonton located between Lake Oconee and Lake Sinclair is here to represent and promote the diversity of our Downtown businesses, and support those organizations and individuals that have an interest in or ownership of them.

Our role is to act as a hub for relevant news and resources, knowledge and good practice; to raise the profile and support the economic wellbeing of businesses in Downtown Eatonton — through our Façade Grant Program and Briar Patch Economic Vitality campaign. To support our Community through our Festivals, Movie Nights and Partnerships.

Our activities are principally promoted through the Local News Media and our very own Social Media outlets:
