Preserve. Build. Thrive.

Destination Caldwell is a 501(c ) (3) organization that creates high-impact projects which leverages our rich agricultural heritage and vibrant community spirit to build a prosperous future for Caldwell.
With the help of business and civic leaders, we’re making our community an even more desirable place to live, do business and visit.

Destination Caldwell was formed in 2013 by a grassroots team of local citizens, downtown property owners, and business leaders seeking to create better opportunities to live, work and play. In 2018, the organization was able to hire staff to continue this work on a daily basis.

Since our founding, Destination Caldwell projects have attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors and generated millions of dollars in economic impact.

Our Vision For Caldwell

When our organization was founded a team of community volunteers worked with downtown development expert Roger Brooks to develop a brand and action plan that we are still executing today.

Our vision to position Caldwell as Idaho’s premier gathering place with a focus on locally produced wines throughout the Sunnyslope region, market-fresh goods, and farm to fork dining has come to fruition.

Now, we must work to protect our brand by continuing to preserve and expand on our progress.
