Become a Stakeholder: Community Partnership

Welcome Home

It’s been said that the downtown is every community’s front porch. Batavia MainStreet works to make sure that our downtown is a warm, welcoming and exciting place to be.
But we need your help.

As a volunteer-driven organization, MainStreet relies on the generosity of the community to help plan festivals and events, beautify downtown, recruit new businesses and more.
And each year, people and businesses in the community provide much-needed financial support to Batavia MainStreet so that this valuable work can continue. Will you be one of those supports this year and help us as we work to make Downtown Batavia a great place to shop, dine, work, and live?

Future Goals
