About the Escondido Downtown Business Association
We are very excited to have you join us here in the historic district of Escondido. Most of us on the DBA Board are also current business owners or have owned businesses so we certainly understand what it takes to open a new business. We applaud you and thank you.

One of the ways in which the DBA promotes the downtown is by developing events or assisting in the development and running of events.

The DBA was started in 1962 by some community­ minded downtown business owners. It was developed so that business owners could get to know their fellow entrepreneurs and business neighbors, to speak as an advocate for the businesses, and to market and promote the downtown area of Escondido. It was also started to be an advocate for businesses with the city, the fire department and the police department.
