It has one purpose – to share our commitment to a revitalized downtown Willimantic neighborhood – a commitment to helping us grow a thriving community, where great food, entertainment, the arts, culture, and social activities come together.
At our Toast of the Town monthly get-togethers, downtown area businesses and organizations are invited to share ideas and recommendations that promote a thriving neighborhood. At each get-together, you can expect to nosh on great food, network with your neighbors, share events and projects, and most importantly, tell the group what inspires and excites you about downtown.
Surrounded by a beautiful countryside, Willimantic is an ethnically diverse, culturally rich urban haven for artists, entrepreneurs, and academia. Proud of its well-preserved industrial roots and Victorian-age heritage, Willimantic (aka Thread City) residents enjoy living in a town that encourages creative expression and entrepreneurial risk-taking. We welcome visitors, new residents, and business to find themselves in Willimantic!
