Welcome to the home page of the Downtown Auburn Business Association. The Downtown Auburn Business Association (DABA) has been serving downtown Auburn, Indiana, since the 1940’s when it was established as an association for business owners to gather and collaborate, focusing their efforts on bringing customers to the downtown. In the early days as was the case in all downtowns across the country, nearly all business took place in downtown business districts and most towns and cities had a retail merchant’s association.
As one of the oldest business associations in the state of Indiana, DABA’s membership consists of 84 retail and service businesses that all share the same goal; "To foster and maintain a viable downtown business district through community pride and awareness, promotion and marketing, and philanthropic endeavors".
In addition to these events, DABA is an annual supporter of the DeKalb County Fair and has donated to the following projects: Reike Park, The DeKalb County Outdoor Theater, and the J. Seward Johnson sculpture exhibit, presented by the Auburn Arts Commission.
DABA meets the first Thursday of each month (Except January) at 8:00 am at The Auburn Deli. If you would like to become a member and help support the efforts of DABA in historic downtown Auburn click here>. Send us an email with your thoughts and questions click here>.
