Welcome to Downtown Portsmouth

Why Downtown?

11745778_734322940030615_4538562088024950778_nImagine downtown Portsmouth with each building beautifully restored, filled with successful businesses, and overflowing with people. At Main Street Portsmouth, we believe with community support and collaboration, we can have a healthy, energetic and prosperous downtown once again.

A downtown speaks for the health of the local economy, development, and business. A prosperous downtown Рor the lack of one Рcan affect the community’s ability to attract and retain the residents, investments, jobs, and tourists. By stimulating local business development, reinvesting in historic buildings, and embracing our unique characteristics, we can reconnect with the Portsmouth community as the center for local pride to live, work, and play.

As a 501c3 we are an economic development organization that works specifically to enhance the district and improve the image of downtown while promoting the great stores and unique architecture. Join our team of volunteers, small business owners, and leaders. We are volunteers who give our time to help organize unique retail events, and improve the districts image through beautification and preservation projects that benefit downtown and the greater area.
