Welcome to Greater Ashmont Main Street! Greater Ashmont was designated as one of Boston's Main Street Districts in the summer of 1999. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation that brings together local businesses, residents, neighborhood organizations and community partners to strengthen the Greater Ashmont business district and the entire community. Our commercial district includes more than 100 businesses in almost 400,000 square feet of commercial and institutional space, and serves more than 30,000 residents, workers and commuters. We invite you to join us in our efforts to make the Greater Ashmont district an even better place to live, work, and play!
After several years of planning, St. Mark’s Area Main Street is re-branding itself to better align our organizational name with all the work we hope to accomplish for this diverse and growing Main Street District. The re-branding is being coordinated with Boston Main Streets own re-design and is being supported financially by a generous private foundation grant, as well as pro bono services from marketing and design industry professionals. We are in the process of updating our name everywhere necessary (website, social media channels, legal documents, signage, etc.) and hope to have all re-branding work complete by June for Dorchester Day. Thank you for your patience! All prior email addresses and the smams.org web address will redirect to the newly branded versions for several years to come, to allow folks time to become updated.
Our annual fundraiser, Coattails & Cocktails on April 3, was the big public reveal of our new name and logo. Special thanks to Lindsay Hill Design for all their work on our new logo and branding implementation, and also to Lusterity, a local event planning firm without which our unveiling could not have been so well done and memorable. They are a pleasure to work with and we are very glad to have partnered with them!
