About

What is Wayland Main Street?

We’re a ‘we’, not a ‘what’…

Wayland Main Street organizes and implements a holistic revitalization program for Downtown Wayland. We are friends and neighbors pulling together in a grassroots organization powered by community business and property owners, employees and volunteers, and residents and visitors of all ages. We are building legacy by encouraging and catalyzing preservation, investment and development. We are hometown folks celebrating place by bringing people together at special events, promoting awareness and involvement, and instilling pride in Wayland.
