Who we are
The Barre Partnership is the "Granite City's" Downtown Organization. It was founded in 1999 and is governed by a board of directors comprised of community members and day to day operations are managed by its director. The organization produces events throughout the year including the Barre Heritage Festival, Summer Concert Series at Currier Park, Granite City 5K Run/Walk for Veterans and collaborates with area businesses to increase economic activity.
Barre is the self proclaimed "Granite Center of the World" rich in heritage and resilient in the face of changing economies. Major infrastructure upgrades and streetscape improvements along with several redevelopment initiatives and a resurgence of entrepreneurship downtown have all contributed to the revitalization of downtown Barre.
