About TDA

A Bold Vision for the Future

Trenton Downtown Association

Trenton Downtown Association (TDA) is a small nonprofit organization making a significant impact in New Jersey's state capital.

Established in 1986, TDA is dedicated to strengthening downtown Trenton through innovative programs aimed to promote economic growth and encourage investment in the city's future. TDA supports a wide range of activities designed to establish downtown Trenton as a competitive location for business owners, an engaging center for workers and visitors, and a wonderful place to live. Our activities include recruitment and retention, public relations, advocacy, marketing, referrals, partnerships, development and job creation.

Over the years, TDA has also hosted many events, such as the Capital City Farmers' Market, Levitt AMP Trenton Music Series and Patriots Week. These events are a source of positivity and pride for Trentonians, and attract visitors to our city.  

The future of downtown Trenton is bold and ambitious.  To succeed, it must include a clean and safe commercial district, increased support for local businesses, outreach to the community, continued support of the arts and culture,  and collaborative public policy planning and advocacy.
