I would describe Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association as a non-profit / volunteer driven organization on steroids! I am constantly amazed at the generosity, the dedication and the commitment the volunteers have made to this organization and the community at large. These talented and tireless individuals accomplish so much in their “spare time.” We are a better & stronger and more united Downtown because of their dedicated service.

As a recent volunteer and transplant to the F-V community I love how Fuquay-Varina Downtown not only gives us great things to do in downtown by sponsoring events and making the public aware of other events that are going on, but also by giving us ways to get involved. Sometimes volunteering can seem overwhelming and people don't know where to start or how to get involved, but Fuquay-Varina Downtown makes it easy to get involved - whether you have 30 minutes or 3 hours to share! It's not only contributing to a great organization, but getting to share in its growth and successes as well.

We moved to Fuquay Varina last spring and quickly became involved with the Downtown Association. The people are an inspiration and are so dedicated to maintaining an active, eclectic, and quaint atmosphere for our two downtown areas. I was especially impressed with the many annual events that the association sponsors which pull in people of all ages from the entire area. A sense of community and care are the mantra all brought about by smiling, welcome faces!

Fuquay-Varina Downtown is a blessing to our community in so many ways. I've been constantly impressed by the organization and management of the many events throughout the year that are made possible because of FVD. As a volunteer and vendor I've seen many facets of the organization and all are as much of a pleasure to work with from a business standpoint as they are to experience from the public viewpoint. It isn't easy to stay optimistic and excited about a small downtown in the midst of economic woes, big boxes, and the online age. The folks at FVD are always optimistic, creative, and perhaps most importantly - willing. Willing to work hard. Willing to innovate. Willing to listen. I couldn't ask for a better organization for our community here in Fuquay-Varina's downtown.
