Building a Better Boyertown (BBB) is a non-profit organization formed in 2002. Boyertown, PA is a Main Street Community, received funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and private donors to focus on downtown revitalization.
BBB staff and volunteers develop and accomplish tasks that maintain Boyertown’s historical heritage, promote downtown Boyertown and attract people to the community. They concentrate on business recruitment and retention and on providing technical assistance and grant opportunities for property and business owners in the Main Street District to make facade improvements enhancing the town's Victorian architecture.
Overall, Boyertown's approach to revitalization is comprehensive in nature. We are always looking for fresh faces and ideas to help us achieve our goals. Come join us, and the fun!

Just as the people of Bavaria gathered each September two hundred years ago to celebrate the harvest, Building a Better Boyertown has hosted its own Oktoberfest celebration here in the heart of our small community, for the past nine years. Boyertown’s Oktoberfest remains true to the original German Oktoberfest celebration by providing a market for local craftsman to display and sell their wares as well as providing entertainment and refreshments for those that attend.
This event has provided the funds for BBB to engage in projects and activities that enhance and promote Downtown Boyertown and the greater Boyertown area. This year, BBB will, once again, hold Oktoberfest over a two day, fun – filled celebration. On Friday, September 16th, from 5:00pm – 9:00pm, please join the BBB in the Town Center Parking Lot as we continue reading…
