Upcoming Events


Maine Downtown Center Webinar

Please join us for our first Maine Downtown Center webinar of 2020. Fundraising events can be successful because they engage new volunteers, are easy to plan and implement, or raise a lot of funds. We will present some best practices for small organization fundraising efforts and share some successful events currently being used by our downtown organizations statewide. Registration is required and the webinar will be recorded.

Maine Downtown Center Workshop

Location: Augusta City Hall, 16 Cony Street, Augusta, ME

The Facilitator Training workshop will provide people with an introduction to facilitation for public engagement. Participants will be introduced to the role of the facilitator, facilitation techniques and skills, and will focus on interactive activities to practice facilitation skills. Practice facilitation will include facilitating small group dialogues and addressing challenging scenarios.

Maine Downtown Center Free Webinar Series

Please join us for our February webinar. Pocket Parks are small downtown parks, usually a ¼ acre or less. They create space for people to gather, relax, and enjoy the outdoors. They can be permanent or temporary. We will present some best practices for approaching the design, building, and programming of pocket parks and lots of Maine examples.
