    The Heart of Danville both sponsors and plays a major support role to the range of social events that happen in our downtown throughout the year.  Our year-round events provide our community an opportunity to be together and share in fun.  They also offer visitors and local residents alike a chance to get more familiar with our downtown offerings and give them reason to keep coming back to shop, work, or play.
