The Marquette Downtown Development Authority is forty years old this month! The DDA was established by the Marquette City Commission on January 12, 1976. to celebrate this landmark anniversary, we are hosting a Business After Hours on January 20 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Hampton Inn, 461 S. Lakeshore Blvd. The evening will feature a Taste of Marquette, with delicious appetizers graciously provided by many of the Downtown District’s outstanding restaurants. We will also be offering wine and a variety of beers from our popular breweries and awarding fabulous prizes from businesses throughout the district.
We would like to extend our appreciation to all of the contributing businesses for their generosity, the Hampton Inn for the beautiful venue, and the Lake Superior Community Partnership for their assistance in coordinating the evening’s festivities. We hope that you will join us as we celebrate our efforts to keep Marquette’s Downtown District a centerpiece of our community and region.
