Membership in The Barre Partnership makes a difference!
When you are as lucky as we are to live and work in an amazing place like Barre, it’s hard not to shout about it from the rooftops! We invite you to join The Barre Partnership’s members to tell people in Vermont and across the country about the Granite City of the World, and encourage them to come check it out for themselves. We need your support to further our mission and sustain the following initiatives:
Downtown Events: The Barre Partnership organizes the annual Barre Heritage Festival, the Barre Famer’s Market, and the Summer Concerts in Currier Park series. We also help promote countless independently organized events like the Granite City 5K and promote and support downtown business events. Downtown events bring shoppers and diners to downtown Barre and promote a vibrant downtown atmosphere.
Streetscape Beautification: We work to beautify downtown with our winter and summer banners, flower plantings and streetscape improvements, such as holiday lights and art-work. We also work with Studio Place Arts to support installation of the granite art pieces downtown.
Economic Development: We foster economic development by supporting smart development policies, working collaboratively with the Barre Area Development Corporation, hosting ribbon-cuttings for new businesses, and collaborating with Barre businesses, civic, and governmental organizations to enhance the city's position as a preferred location for business.
Marketing and Promotion: We work with the State of Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing to promote Barre as a great place to visit, and promote Barre’s shopping, dining, and entertainment options to visitors near and far. We have refreshed our website with new content, have a monthly email newsletter, and have energized our social media, print and radio presence all to better serve this goal.
