Downtown Promotions

The Newton Area Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the City of Newton, has a program that exists with the sole purpose to promote Downtown Newton (aka the Central Business District). The Central Business District is the heart of any community, and we work to help maintain a relevant, proactive downtown through our Downtown Promotions program.

As a part of this program, a member of Chamber staff hosts a monthly meeting with Chamber downtown business owners to discuss and plan promotional events and other initiatives to benefit the downtown area. Some annual programs that you might be familiar with from this committee include Taste of Christmas, Summer Sidewalk Sales, and College Night.

The Downtown Promotions Committee meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 8:00 am at Norm’s Coffee Bar. If you are a downtown business owner and a member of the Chamber, we invite you to be a part of this committee so we can hear your thoughts and ideas. For more information about the program, contact Dyan Roberson at
