DIY Downtown Building A Better Community

Pull up your bootstraps

and put on your work gloves.

It’s time to get outside and start making a difference in Downtown Phoenix. By knitting together the efforts of neighborhood groups, city leaders, nonprofits and community advocates, we can build the downtown we want — and have a great time doing it.

DIY Downtown is a collection of awesome seasonal events, civic engagement activities, downtown networks and volunteer opportunities. Whether you just want to ride your bike more or help shape alternative transportation policy, there are so many ways to get plugged into the issues you care about.

So come get involved!
