Downtown is the true gathering place for our community—it is where we come to celebrate Pleasanton.

Downtown is the host of Pleasanton’s special celebrations, from the Holiday Parade to Summer Concerts in the Park. Downtown has activities that span the calendar—antique fairs, classic car shows, music and street festivals are always drawing crowds of locals and tourists.

Every Saturday brings the Farmers’ Market to downtown. Fresh organic produce, fresh-cut flowers, breads and pastries, jams and cheeses are lovingly displayed for the customers who travel here from throughout the region.

Downtown is home to over 550 unique businesses, including restaurants, retail shops, salons, spas and business and personal services. In 1984, the City Council recognized this special business area with the creation of the Pleasanton Downtown Association (PDA). The PDA operates as an assessment district with the goal of developing and promoting a vibrant downtown community in partnership with business owners, property owners, the City of Pleasanton and many community volunteers.

The PDA coordinates over 45 special events each year to bring residents and visitors in downtown. These events include Concerts in the Park, Wine Stroll & Brew Crawls, 1st Wednesday Street Parties, Antique Fairs, Sizzling Saturdays, Earlier than the Bird and Magical Holiday Evening.
