Main Street Program

The Texas Main Street Program, part of the Texas Historical Commission’s Community Heritage Development Division, helps Texas cities revitalize their historic downtown and neighborhood commercial districts by utilizing preservation and economic development strategies. Del Rio has been a proud Texas Main Street City since 2002, actively supporting the expansion of the downtown economic base by assisting in recruiting more businesses to downtown, advertising available properties in the district, assisting with historic preservation efforts and streetscape improvements.

As a Main Street America Affiliate™, Del Rio Main Street Program is part of a national network of more than 1,200 neighborhoods and communities who share both a commitment to creating high-quality places and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development.


The Del Rio Main Street Program preserves and showcases historic downtown Del Rio, the heart of our community. For the benefit of present and future generations, the Main Street district secures our heritage and a lively pedestrian-friendly blend of commerce, entertainment, arts, and education.


Interested and dedicated citizens throughout the community of Del Rio will collaborate with all levels of government, civic, and commercial organizations to forge partnerships honoring and realizing the Vision of the Del Rio Main Street Program. By revitalizing and preserving the central business district, partners will work toward an improved quality of life for the whole city, creating an attractive, bustling destination for residents, tourists, and travelers.

The Main Street program is dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and promotion of downtown Del Rio and to its economic revitalization.

This board is volunteer staffed and represents merchants, building owners and interested parties in the area. The organization meets once a month, the date and time along with more information on the program can be found by calling the City Secretary at 830-774-8715.
