DAVIS, Calif. (April 19, 2021) — The popular Picnic Day Parade and the Davis Children’s Christmas Parade were canceled by the pandemic.

By Wendy Weitzel for the Davis Enterprise (April 15, 2021) Local artists continue connecting and sharing their craft, knowing their voice is amplified when they work together. That was the message April 8, 2021 at a virtual meeting of Arts Alliance Davis. The 18 attendees heard first about the newly formed Sacramento Alliance for Regional Arts. The nonprofit promotes and advocates for arts, art education and cultural equity in the greater Sacramento region.
A beloved local tradition - the "Home for the Holidays" concert - continues this year streaming online. The event will be simulcast Thursday December 17 at 7 PM on KDRT 95.7 FM and DCTV Channel 15, and will be available for video and audio streaming at kdrt.org ( a link will be provided there the day of the show). Concert producer Bill Fairfield has brought together many returning favorite local musicians, as well as adding some new special guests to this year's video program.
During this time of COVID-19, nonprofits are especially at risk, which makes your community support even more vital.

This list includes donors from July 1 - January 31, 2021. DMA's donors and supporters make possible a great deal of the work we do. We appreciate you!

Free Speech Week has been celebrated in the U.S. since 2005. To kick off this special week, we're joining with non-commercial media centers across the country for Community Media Day on October 20th, and will debut a short video highlighting our wide array of grassroots activities and local projects. Throughout the week, we will continue to post special videos and photos on our social media pages - Davis Media FB and KDRT FB .
Davis Media Access (DMA) offers a unique opportunity for local non-profits and community-based organizations to create public service announcements. As a fellow non-profit and Yolo County’s only community media center, DMA knows how difficult it can be to get the word out about programs and services—and on a budget, no less! Short, pithy, visual, inexpensive, and available online? DMA can help.
