Located in the heart of the Connecticut River Valley and surrounded by rolling hills and green mountains, Downtown Brattleboro has plenty to offer.

From incredible dining, shopping, and entertainment options to a thriving arts community and outdoor adventures, everyone is bound to find something that thrills them downtown! The Downtown Brattleboro Alliance invites you to experience the delightfully charming and special place we call home.


Flowers, Flowers, Flowers! Our beloved program relies on the property owners of downtown who contribute annually to DBA.  But it is not enough to cover all of DBA’s costs + the flower program budget of $23,000.  Your donations will go directly to pay for the plants, barrel acquisition, watering, maintenance, and the DBA flower truck.

We can’t do this without your support, please join in to ensure that the flowers remain a beautiful addition to our downtown community during the spring, summer and fall season. Any gift amount is greatly appreciated.

Your donation is tax deductible due to our 501(c)(3) non-profit status; our Federal ID is 03-0358074.

EVERYONE EATS was extended through September 30, 2022. We will be distributing 3,000+ meals each week through September with the help of our community organizations in Brattleboro, Newfane, Guilford, Townsend Putney, Marlboro, and Dummerston.

Tuesdays, Wednesday & Thursdays after 5:00 at the Retreat Farm Farmstand: FREE.
Tuesday & Wednesday at Winston Prouty after 3:00: FREE.

With more than 200 volunteers, over 300,000 meals and many many pounds of Vermont produce and products the Everyone Eats continues to serve!

Statewide the many partnerships have generated over $22 million in revenue for Vermont restaurants who in turn have made prepared 1.8 million nourishing meals highlighting ingredients from VT farmers and food producers for neighbors experiencing food insecurity. This program is only possible because of the countless individuals who have stepped forward to help one another in times of need.

Thank you to the volunteers who support us!  Thank you to the 21 community organizations who distribute these meals. Thank you to the restaurants for your delicious meals!


We invite media writers and social media influencers to our community! We are specifically focusing on writers from the BIPOC community. Our goal is to provide a welcoming invitation to spend time in our community.

We have great news on a recent success: ZPOTS, our newest gallery on Main St. is included on HerMoney in a feature titled “Mother’s Day Gifts under $100“.
