Our Story

In 2020 the City of Williamsburg received a Main Streets Grant to fund the creation of a downtown business district that was more representative of the city that the existing Merchant's Square Association, which focuses on Colonial Williamsburg Foundation buildings and businesses along Duke of Gloucester Street.


Our volunteer board of directors, comprised of residents, business owners, faith leaders and community advocates works together to curate and support city improvement projects and events that make the most of Williamsburg's historical and natural beauty within the city limits.

Williamsburg has more to offer residents and tourists than they often realize. It's our goal to shine a light on all that this wonderful community has to offer. We welcome your ideas and encourage you to consider volunteering to help with future projects.
