Ambler Main Street is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the Borough’s crown jewel, Downtown Ambler, promoting it as a social, cultural and business center offering dining with diverse cuisines, award-winning entertainment and eclectic shopping.
The organization is made up of volunteers, community members and business owners, who live in, work in and love the Borough of Ambler. We are committed to improving our community, promoting economic development and engaging business owners, Borough residents and visitors from throughout the Delaware Valley.
In the late 1990’s, a group of Ambler business owners, residents and other interested parties joined forces to form the Ambler Main Street organization, to work with the Borough of Ambler in revitalizing the downtown area, with funding from the National Main Street program and grants from Montgomery County.
Since then, Ambler Main Street has worked closely with Ambler Borough, although it is autonomous from local government; instead, today it is primarily funded by business memberships and residential donations, along with contributions from Ambler Borough in the form of public works services and volunteers. We also work closely with other area businesses and civic organizations, including the Ambler Kiwanis and Ambler Rotary clubs.
Ambler Main Street organizes many well-attended annual events throughout the year, including:
- Ambler Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings from May to October
- First Fridays, a once-a-month festival from May to October, with arts, games, live music, merchant promotions and delicious foods
- Restaurant Week (January and July)
- Auto Show (May)
- Ambler Arts & Music Festival (June)
- OktoberFest (October)
- Christmas Parade (December)
