Thousands of revelers will hit the streets of downtown DeLand from 6pm-9pm in search of hula, conga, and crazy tropical hats. There will be steel drum music, limbo contests, hula hoop showdowns, kids' activities and conga lines. The downtown DeLand merchants will offer refreshments, food & drink specials, sales, and discounts. Enter your hat in the Best Decorated Hat contest. Judging will be at 7:00 pm on W. Indiana Ave. Bring the whole family for a fun night out!
Explore our very own quarterly market here in DeLand called Indie Market, located at Artisan Alley. Four times a year we get to enjoy handmade goods & gifts by vendors from all around Florida. This Sunday enjoy @BrownbagBB at Cafe Da Vinci from 1pm-4pm. Grab a beer at Persimmon, coffee at Trilogy, juice from Beeatroot or some grub at BakeChop.
Honor those who have served our nation at this heartwarming annual parade. The parade kicks off with a vintage military aircraft flyover. It then features veterans of all branches of service, as well as military vehicles, marching bands and patriotic floats on Woodland Blvd. It is our goal to honor the sacrifices of all veterans and their families in a daylong celebration in historic Downtown DeLand. Parade entries are limited to members of our armed services, veterans, and related civic organizations. For more information contact the MainStreet DeLand Association office: 386-738-0649.
This is a GoFundMe set up by Ben Forest in memory of his sister Kiley Fontaine. Kiley & her two daughters were in a car accident on March 28th, 2019 & Kiley did not survive. Kiley’s mother, Carol is a local business owner right here in Downtown DeLand. She is now raising her two grand babies. Please consider donating to help with the expense of raising Scarlet & Paisley. Check out the link for more information. If you’d like to donate at the barbershop, please feel free to stop by & talk to Joi. She’ll be happy to donate on your behalf. You can also stop by Orchid Rain & donate with Katy. Anything helps!
The car is a limited late model/sportsman and will be ran at new smyrna speedway weekly and other tracks throughout the year in central Florida. I’m looking to get 5 sponsors at 1,000 dollars each which would help finish the car and help me buy fuel and tires all year. You logo would be integrated on my car as well as my trailer, shirts, website and social media. You would be able to use the car for events to draw more clients to your company as well. My dad and I were in the middle of this project and he passed away unexpectedly in early March, so I’m reaching out for help. All profits from the racing will be donated back into the community to help feed hungry children\

2019 Keep DeLand Beautiful
Keep DeLand Beautiful is pure community. It’s an initiative that joins West Volusia citizens, businesses and government agencies together for a day of environmental awareness, celebration and regional activism.
This year’s Keep DeLand Beautiful event goes beyond DeLand city borders and welcomes all families, businesses and communities of West Volusia to Earl Brown Park, DeLand on Saturday, March 16th to really make a difference.
“Teams” of families, businesses, churches, groups, agencies will gather to celebrate and “compete” in an eco-friendly community-wide clean-up of selected areas within the West Volusia region for awards, bragging rights and, of course, making a key environmental difference within our region.
Businesses which emphasize either an organic, natural, environmentally aware, earth-friendly or holistic product/service are especially welcome to participate, sponsor and support this ½ day event.
There are five categories of sponsorship packages available which allow Chamber Members to cost effectively choose a combination of affordable consumer and business to business marketing tools via:
· Digital Media
· Onsite Marketing
· Traditional Media
· Chamber Advertising
Regardless of sponsorship level, your business will be positioned as a steward of the environment, community-minded and eco-friendly.
Please note: Some sponsorship categories are limited in availability due to booth space or level maximums. Some are first-come, first-serve. It would be wise to secure your space and support level today via e-mail.
The DeLand Area Chamber of Commerce and Orange City Alliance hope you’ll give serious consideration of making a big difference in our community and support the 2019 Keep DeLand Beautiful event as a part of your marketing and advertising programs in first quarter. For questions or to secure sponsorships, e-mail Opportunities@DeLandChamber.Org with business name and desired level.
