Located south of the Central Business District, the South Congress District is known as one of Austin’s most eclectic commercial areas. With a diverse selection of businesses and services, South Congress has become a year-round destination for visitors and residents. From a barbershop to a candy store and a pizza restaurant, South Congress is at the top of every Austin list.
After gathering informally as a merchants association for over 10 years, the South Congress Merchants joined Soul-y Austin with the goal of formalizing their association and having a voice for the district. The SCMA is currently going through the Soul-y Austin process which includes formalizing their association, drafting bylaws, and participating in monthly meetings that gather the data that will help create their business district strategy.
