Keeping downtown vital and vibrant.What things make a small town special? The schools and neighborhoods? A feeling of community and togetherness? A welcoming and accessible Main Street designed for drive or stroll? It’s an ineffable sense of place—a livable space lined with beautiful, historic buildings and thriving, locally owned businesses. Simsbury’s unique heritage, charm and adventure are preserved, enhanced, and promoted by Simsbury Main Street Partnership and its members. We do this through a four-point approach:
Promoting the Simsbury Brand
Supporting the social environment of downtown Simsbury by promoting the many benefits of Simsbury center through retail promotions, special events, and preservation of our town’s unique character. In 2008, with the help of federal and state grants, SMSP was able to brand Simsbury through new promotional literature designed to highlight and advertise tourism to visitors, and also to serve as convenient references for residents. Free information available at the library or town hall.

Supporting Simsbury Businesses
Our first priority is to help the businesses currently in our downtown, many of which are locally-owned independents. We also help fill vacant offices and buildings by actively seeking businesses which fit with Simsbury character.
Enhancing Simsbury Beauty
We focus on increasing the beauty and physical value of our downtown. From maintaining public spaces to ongoing, long-range community planning, Main Street meets the challenges of keeping Simsbury beautiful and functional.
Building Our Community
We believe that community success is built through consensus and cooperation. Simsbury Main Street Partnership initiates and facilitates non-political dialogue and creates actions steps among constituents, to ensure the continued vitality of Simsbury. SMSP is the overseeing group of the Simsbury Farmers Market.
