Our Mission

Downtown Bernardsville seeks to revitalize and maintain a stronger, more vibrant downtown through the Main Street 4-Point Approach. This organization offers support for our local businesses, provides additional resources to bolster downtown activities, conducts annual special events, and seeks to rebuild a strong sense of pride in our community. We aim to encourage visitors from all areas of New Jersey (and beyond) to shop, dine, stay and explore our town. Downtown Bernardsville will work to raise funds in support of our events through various fundraising initiatives such as sponsorships, event tickets and registrations, participation fees and more. Additional funds will be raised through appropriations from the Borough of Bernardsville, Grants from the State, and project specific sponsorship campaigns. We can do more with your support and continue to revitalize and maintain a thriving community.

How You Can Help

Local Businesses
Throughout the year, take advantage of sponsorship opportunities, event participation, and sharing the word about our events. We will be holding several annual events, starting with Restaurant week in January, Dad's Day Dash 5K in June, Trunk or Treat & Fall Fest in October and the Holiday Cookie Crawl in December. More events to come as we raise funds throughout the year! Check out our upcoming event sponsorship opportunities here.

Planning every event throughout the year takes time, effort, and determination to secure sponsors, assist with marketing and promotional efforts and being there on event days to help with many aspects of running an event. If you would like to volunteer in the planning or execution of any one or all of our events, join our volunteer mailing list for updates and more. If you'd like to become a regular on our planning board, email Olivia Manning directly.
