Dunedin Wines the Blues

The DDMA is a nonprofit organization that promotes and raises awareness about the value of shopping local through business networking, media opportunities and community-wide events such as Dunedin Wines the Blues, one of the group’s largest events all year. In 2020, as business communities across the country faced the challenge of keeping their doors open amid an unpredictable pandemic, the Association launched its latest marketing campaign “Love Downtown Dunedin” to promote the revitalization of the downtown area and help grow a sense of community.
