Allston Village Main Streets works to develop a thriving commercial district by assisting neighborhood businesses and promoting the physical and cultural vitality of Allston Village.

About AVMS

Founded in 1996, Allston Village Main Streets works to help make Allston Village a thriving, safe, friendly business district, by promoting the area, making it cleaner, greener and more pedestrian-oriented.


We accomplish this through locating grants to implement maintenance and design improvements, providing technical assistance and support to local businesses, hosting events that draw people into Allston, and advocating on behalf of the neighborhood.


Allston is a young, diverse, and food and entertainment centered commercial corridor. The organization follows the National Main Street Program’s four-point approach to maintain Allston Village as a great place to live, work, play, and own a small business.

Volunteer Opportunities

The projects and programs put on by our organization are only possible with the help of our committed volunteers! We are always looking for new volunteers to help out with planning events, providing resources to Allston's local businesses, and beautifying the neighborhood through implementing design improvements. 

We've been active through COVID, moving to virtual meetings and socially distanced planning sessions. If you'd like to learn more about our volunteer opportunities, click the link below!
