Visit Downtown Bennington VT.jpg


Everyone Benefits from a Healthy Downtown

The Mission of Better Bennington Corporation is to lead and support public and private efforts that enhance downtown as the vital commercial and cultural heart of the community.

Business Owners

Everything we do at the BBC is either in response to your feedback or in anticipation of your business needs.  The services we provide specifically for our business members include: new business start-up assistance, brochure distribution, visitor referrals, round table presentations, website business listing, downtown gift certificates, and email notifications, just to name a few.  

Everything else we do is designed to attract new businesses, tourists, residents, students, and investors.  That includes streetscape projects, economic development initiatives, events and promotions, working with area colleges and local organizations to engage the community, and cooperative marketing opportunities.

Bennington Residents

Since the BBC corporate mission is to make sure that downtown Bennington benefits our entire community, we continue to keep all our downtown events free to the public and we provide opportunities for local schools and organizations to participate in all our projects and activities.  We also work closely with town crews in Bennington to ensure that downtown is always clean, safe, and beautifully maintained.



Along with a healthy housing market, excellent health care, personal safety, and superior schools a well maintained and active downtown plays a significant role when recruiting talented personnel.  Without question, it will be the first place they bring their families when they arrive in town.  

They will find a safe environment that is free of graffiti and litter, one that showcases locally owned businesses and quality products.  Our downtown caters to every age and every taste, from well-maintained and designed public spaces to interesting specialty shops and restaurants.

Your financial support will guarantee continued growth and improvement of the "face" of our community.  The Better Bennington Corporation also offers a Corporate Sponsorship Program that provides marketing opportunities for our partners.  Please contact us if you are interested in learning more.
