Our City. Our Future.

DWC exists to unify the community and facilitate the revitalization of Woonsocket.


About DWC

We assist and advocate for revitalization in our Main Street area through building community support, encouraging investment, improving the reputation and appearance of downtown, and increasing economic growth through the retention and recruitment of the arts, culture, business, and tourism.

DWC is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteer board members dedicated to improving and promoting downtown Woonsocket. We aspire to make Woonsocket a world-renown destination by utilizing our city's rich history, culture and architecture. We are inspired and dedicated to bringing attention, appreciation and excitement to our community. We want people to visit, work, shop, dine, drink, live and love Woonsocket.
