      Business Sign Up for National Night Out 2013

      your business is invited

      As a business serving the downtown core and its residents, we invite you to participate in National Night Out (NNO) - an important annual neighborhood event coming up this year on Tuesday, August 6th. Neighborhoods all across the nation plan to gather that evening for NNO events that encourage prevention of crime by getting to know your neighbors and members of your local police department. Our downtown neighborhood is no exception! For more information on the National Night Out program visit: also check out some photos from the last few years events.

      This year, our downtown neighborhood gathering will be held at Long Look Garden, located at 400 Robert D. Ray Drive in downtown Des Moines, on August 6th from 5:30 – 8pm. We have secured a rain location of the Brenton Skating Plaza, located at 520 Robert D. Ray Drive in Downtown Des Moines. We plan to provide food and local live music for an estimated 200+ downtown residents, local police officers, legislators and VIP’s who will join us during the evening. The event will be free to attendees and promote a safe and friendly neighborhood for our residents and visitors to downtown Des Moines.

      As part of our downtown neighborhood NNO celebration, we invite downtown businesses to come out and engage with fellow DNA members and residents, members of the DMPD, and special invited guests by setting up a booth or table at Long Look Garden to showcase & promote your products and services and foster local customer contacts.

      For the last few years, the NNO Downtown Business Member Showcase was so well received that we had many requests from residents and board members to do this again for 2012. How you set up your table or what you choose to provide for the event is up to you, but some ideas from last year include:

      • Provide staff to talk to and meet residents and attendees at the event – wear easily identifiable uniforms/t-shirts, nametags, and/or bring signage to designate your table and your employees as part of your business
      • Sample your food/beverages/services, hand out menus, flyers and/or coupons that attendees can use at your business
      • Make a donation for a prize drawing to be announced during the night, etc. The intent is to help promote neighborhood establishments & generate more business from downtown residents - we are open to your ideas!

      There is no charge to reserve space at the event, but we do need a confirmation of participation. We will provide a table and chairs for each participating business. The more information we have in advance, the better we can promote you and the event to our neighborhood residents & special guests!

      Any questions, please contact the DNA Social Committee at: or call Allison Peyton at 515-867-3971.

      We appreciate you and look forward to your involvement in this important downtown event!

      Thank you!
