About Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA)

The mission of the TDDA is to preserve and enhance the community of Tryon through a downtown revitalization program that focuses on economic restructuring and streetscape design.

Our vision statement: Historic Downtown Tryon, framed by the first peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is a thriving arts & culture community that elevates our position as an international equestrian destination, creating the friendliest, most livable small town in the South.

In Fall of 2020, the TDDA completed a month-long visioning session with NC Main Street. During this session, the organization realigned priorities, and committed to serving three key areas concerning Downtown Tryon: arts & culture, livability, and horse heritage. The TDDA Board of Directors has broken into committees serving each of these key areas. Check back for a copy of our full work plan soon.
