About DADA


The Downtown Art District Association

is an independent, 

non-profit, community based, volunteer organization.


We sponsor our First Friday Gallery Hops every month throughout the year. We depend entirely on individual and business

donations in order to pay for gallery hop expenses, which include monthly street-closing and off-duty police officers to look out for everyone's safety.


We also produce and distribute our monthly e-newsletter free of charge to members as well as to anyone who wants to be on our mailing list. 


Contrary to the opinion of many, we do not receive funding from the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County government for these activities.


In keeping with our mission to support the arts in our community, we would like to offer a greater number of educational and outreach programs.

 However, as a non-profit organization, we need your help in this endeavor.


Show your love and  support for the 

Arts District: 

make a tax-deductible donation 

 or become a member  online today!


DADA Members meet every month on Tuesday, 10 days prior to the next gallery hop,in various locations throughout the Art District.

 Join us! Meetings are a great opportunity to meet up with 

art district folk in an informal setting and to find out about all the Hops and other fun events coming up this fall and winter. Our next members meeting is Tuesday, September 25 at Woodland Moth, 619 N Trade St.




 are the Second Wednesday

 of the Month at 5:30pm.
Our next Board meeting is Wednesday, September 12th
