About Downtown Janesville, Inc.

DJI is a non-profit organization whose goal is to activate downtown Janesville, WI. Made up of civic and community leaders and downtown business people, DJI is dedicated to the continued growth and development of Janesville’s historic downtown.

This volunteer-led organization sponsors several events during the year including Flannelfest, Downtown Janesville Wine Walk, Music at the Marv, Downtown Trick or Treat, and Nights on Festival, and partners with local organizations for Janesville Jolly Jingle, Art Infusion, and other downtown events. 

DJI leads seasonal plantings and beautification projects throughout the downtown. We actively market the downtown both locally and throughout southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois to encourage visitors to discover our shops, restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, riverfront, and murals.
