Klamath Falls Downtown Association (KFDA)

Supporting economic revitalization, historic preservation, small business & entrepreneurship in Downtown Klamath Falls.


The Klamath Falls Downtown Association (KFDA) is an affiliate of the national Main Street America program. Among many principles, KFDA believes in downtown revitalization, historic preservation, shopping local and supporting the small businesses that are the cornerstone of our community. Every day, we advocate on behalf of not only the downtown merchants, but the community as a whole so that our rich history is preserved and future generations are proud to call Klamath Falls home.

In this past three years alone, KFDA has deployed over $350,000 in grant funding – all of which will be used to advocate for, enhance, and preserve our downtown. Including matches to grants, that’s almost $750,000 worth of investment value in downtown Klamath Falls. Our downtown sponsors – who we call partners – also feel that it is important to give back to downtown. They have funded the flower baskets on Main Street, a project that proudly welcomes visitors to downtown. They have also volunteered on committees and supported events that increase business engagement in downtown.
