Kenmore's Big Rebrand, Refresh, Revealed Featured

Written by

The Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance has a new name.

The group's leaders say its time to refresh their image with new branding, so now they are going to be called the "Better Kenmore Community Development Corporation", which they say better reflects who they are as an organization.

In a press release, Better Kenmore CDC officials note that since the organization began seven years ago, more than a dozen new businesses and organizations have moved to Kenmore Boulevard, many of the existing business and property owners have invested in building facade improvements, and thousands of people have flocked to the district during its annual Kenmore First Friday events - a series of street festivals which include vendors, food trucks, an outdoor beer garden, community activities, and live music from some of the biggest and brightest artists the region has to offer.

In addition, they say, Kenmore Boulevard is fast becoming known as Akron’s Music Row – home to live music venues, over a half dozen recording studios, a record store, two guitar shops,and a world-renowned luthier.

For more information about the organization and upcoming events, including Kenmore First Friday, which returns to the Boulevard on Friday, June 2, at 6 p.m. and will run through September 1, visit or follow Better Kenmore on Facebook and Instagram.
