We're Making Your Contribution Work All Year Long!
Great News! Our Flower basket program is changing!!
A part of your previous donations are already at work. Your funds, along with generous contributions from the city, have purchased NEW self-watering hanging planters to be installed in our historic downtown. The baskets will be planted and placed in a local greenhouse. Once the outdoor growing season starts, the mature plants will be transported downtown.
That's not the only change!
In 2022, your sponsorship dollars will be used for flowers and to support our entire season of events. Rather than one sign thanking our individual donors, we have created a plan that will allow us to thank our sponsors throughout the year. Markets, beautification projects, Feast of the Seven Fishes, and more!

The Results Are In!
Late in 2021, over 350 Fairmont residents participated in a marketing study with the help of the Downtown Professionals Network and the West Virginia Main Street. The survey asked questions ranging from what types of services people visit now to what they would like to see in the future. We can now share that information with you! Visit our blog HERE to view the results.
A big thank you to everyone who took the time to share their opinions and experiences with us!
