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:





Downtown Eatonton is a non profit organization that encourages the preservation of Eatonton’s historic and cultural character through awareness, business development, events, and by using the National Main Street Center's 4 Point Approach.

Our Downtown has small town charm with successful businesses and happy customers. Downtown Eatonton will encourage sustainable growth, tourism, revitalization and preservation of traditional architecture to enhance downtown.
The Downtown Eatonton app powered by Distrx will provide you with information regarding Downtown businesses and events. 
Browse the Downtown Eatonton district to learn about upcoming events and current merchant offers. Use the app to search for restaurants, bars, retail shops and other merchants. As you enter a participating business, you’ll receive valuable offers & promotions direct to phone.
