Welcome to Building a Better Boyertown

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!

earthfestEARTHFEST 2016 ~ Earth Day in the Boyertown Community Park will be celebrated on Saturday, April 23 from 10AM to 2PM. This is a great way to kick-off spring with a day in the park celebrating nature, the environment, recycling and good health!

The day will start at 7AM with a spectacular Flea Market. Our goal is to have 150 vendors in the park in honor of the 150th Anniversary of Boyertown. Ten foot spaces are still available for $10. Set up begins at 6AM and goes until at least 12:00. You can keep your car at your location.

Our annual shred event, sponsored by Gerhart, Hartman & Ritner, will once again be available from 10 – 12. Bring your items to be shredded safely and securely. We are so pleased to have GH&R sponsor this invaluable service to our community again this year at Earthfest.

There will be pony rides and fun nature and recycling activities. Your spring flowers and trees will be available for purchase along with many other activities and nature crafts to make. We invite you to come and welcome and pet the piglets. And as always, there will be plenty of good food available the entire time.  The Borough will be presented, for the 9th consecutive year, with the “Tree City USA Award”. The Tree Committee, a sub-committee of the Design Committee of the BBB has been instrumental in assisting the Borough with the annual recertification of this prestigious designation.

All children are invited to create a poster on “what Earth Day means to me”. All posters will be displayed at the event.
