About dream.

We are a 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Summerville by enhancing the aesthetic, cultural, social and economic aspects of the downtown area, while preserving its historic identity. Summerville DREAM promotes downtown revitalization through event coordination, business education, advocacy, beautification and enhancement projects, tourism promotion, and marketing historic downtown Summerville to residents and guests.

We operate using the main street approach, which uses both hard data about our community and input from its residents to develop a vision for our downtown. This vision is addressed through four separate committees – Economic Vitality, Promotion, Design, and Organization – each of which acts on different elements of the vision to produce both qualitative and quantitative outcomes. Our goal is to improve the quality of life in downtown Summerville.

DREAM benefits from a diverse array of talents and interest. If you are interested in volunteering for DREAM please register.


DREAM Community Partners are dedicated to providing outstanding customer service, unique cuisine and specialty merchandise.
