The Downtown Carlisle Association was established in 1981 and strives to enhance the civic, cultural and economic vitality of the entire community – retail, service, academic, government and industry. Currently in it’s 30th year, DCA is one of the longest, continuous running Main Street based programs in the Commonwealth.
The DCA houses the “LoveCarlisle.com” brand and creates a glossy printed downtown guide and map. 25,000 of these maps are distributed throughout the downtown and mid-state to appropriate lodging and high traffic attraction sites. Additionally the LoveCarlisle.com website serves as resource for information on entertainment, attractions and visitation information for Downtown Carlisle.
