The City was named as a Florida Main Street City in 1994 when the Downtown Business
Association, the City of Leesburg and the Chamber of Commerce formed the Leesburg Partnership in a united effort to preserve the town's heritage. The Leesburg Partnership has assisted in the City's revitalization projects by hosting many public events and festivals which include Mardi Gras Street Party, the Leesburg Mardi Gras
Ball, the Christmas Parade, the Main Street Christmas Stoll, and the famous Leesburg Bikefest
, to name just a few.
The Leesburg Partnership has done a lot to help with the development of the City of Leesburg in Florida.
