New Beginnings


Like you, MainStreet DeLand is gearing up to meet the new year. Part of that is welcoming new Board Members. Our newest class of directors was sworn in by DeLand Mayor Robert Apgar at the MainStreet Annual meeting in January. Four brand new directors join four returning board members to serve through 2021.

MainStreet DeLand is pleased to welcome Sarah Fogle of Cobb Cole, Kelly Canova of The Canovas Photography, Tyrous Ingram of McDonald’s, and Ginny-Beth Joiner of Stetson to our Board. You can see all of Board of Directors at

While you’re on the website, check out our calendar of events. The DeLand Craft Beer Fest is February 9th, The DeLand Bike Rally is March 9th, and The Florida Wildflower Festival is March 23rd. You can also find out about other things we do like Wine, Women, and Chocolate, our Build Your Business Group, and Tech DeLand.

Spend a little more time there and you can learn about the MainStreet Approach® and sign up to volunteer, locate parking, and look through our downtown directory and membership listings. There are also listings and links to some of our area’s attractions. Resources to help your business or find available property to expand your retail business into downtown are located in the Business section.

DeLand has a long history of celebrating Craft Beers. The DeLand Craft Beer Festival is one of the premier events of its kind. The Festival celebrating its 10th year! In addition to approximately 90 brewers, the committee has added a few more things to make this one special. Tickets are available online at

See you Downtown!
