Downtown Development

Downtown Fuquay-Varina is a North Carolina Main Street Community, and it's no secret why! With two beautiful, quaint districts, Fuquay-Varina has plenty to offer shoppers looking for one-of-a-kind treasures. Dine in our wonderful eateries or stop for a craft-brewed beer at one of our four local breweries.

Focusing on the development of downtown allows the Town to establish downtown Fuquay-Varina as a primary economic, cultural, and social center of the community. 

Downtown Fuquay-Varina is home to a variety of retail and service providers creating a unique place to visit, shop, eat, work, and play.
