About Us

TDDA_Web_Header no Town

 Our Mission: To follow the National Main Street Four Point Approach which is: Organization, Design, Promotion and Economic Restructuring.

Our Vision: Located in the thermal belt, downtown Tryon is a vibrant arts community  at the gateway to the Blue RIdge Mountains. Steeped in equestrian heritage, downtown is the destination for artisan crafts, regional wine, spirits and music.

WELCOME to the website of the Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA). You will find here up-to-date information about the TDDA, its organizational mission, its primary goals, its practical objectives and its sponsored events.

TDDA, in partnership with local business owners, individual members and the Town of Tryon, strives to enhance retail and commercial opportunities in a pedestrian-friendly environment, and to promote economic development via innovative thinking, creative promotion and a celebratory attitude about that which makes our community unique and Nearly Perfect. Always Tryon.

You are invited to take an active role in our organization; you and your ideas can make a substantial difference in the quality of life both in our downtown and in our community. Contact us today. We look forward to hearing from you!
