The BID’s downtown events calendar aims to connect visitors and residents to the many events in Amherst that highlight the downtown businesses and enhance your experience in downtown.



This downtown directory helps connect you to our unique businesses. Here is a link to businesses open for take-out and virtual, online sales with delivery options during COVID-19 shutdown
