Who we are

Our Mission

To nurture South Berwick’s unique sense of place by connecting and engaging citizens in community life and by fostering the long-term balance of the town’s cultural, economic and social well-being, as well as its built and natural environment. 

SoBo Central celebrated its fifth anniversary in 2014 as a community non-profit organization. The organization’s signature event, the South Berwick Lantern Fest, draws thousands of people to the lawn of Spring Hill each year. A non-profit based in South Berwick, SoBo Central was formed in 2009 to bring together citizens committed to a healthy, vibrant town. The organization provides an umbrella for groups putting on concerts, running the ski hill, nurturing our downtown, providing fuel and food for those in need and working to keep our town healthy - environmentally, socially and economically. We invite all residents and business people to join us for any and all of our events and programs
