Kutztown Community Partnership is a community-driven non-profit organization dedicated to the economic revitalization and preservation of Kutztown. The Partnership serves as a liaison to build community, to forge positive relationships, and to foster cultural and economic collaboration in this historic college town. Kutztown Community Partnership envisions Kutztown as an inclusive community that welcomes all our best efforts: to get an education, to do business, and to live well at every stage of our lives.
As of February 2023, Kutztown Community Partnership is the 4th official owner of the Strand Theater. Since 1912, the Strand Theater has stood as a pillar of our community and we are proud to have been granted $450,000 from The Local Shares Account- Statewide Program to reopen this cornerstone of Kutztown.
KCP will be documenting the journey of the Strand as it is prepared and renovated for reopening. Click here to explore our webpage on the Strand Theater. Discover local history you never knew, hear untold stories of the Strand's storied past, and read regularly posted blog updates to be in the know of everything coming to the Strand as KCP embarks upon this new community endeavor.
Kutztown Community Partnership is honored to announce that the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund will be bringing The Wall That Heals to Kutztown in 2023. The Wall That Heals is a 375-foot mobile replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial located in Washington, D.C. As part of The Wall's 2023 Tour, Kutztown has been chosen alongside a group of select cities to host this momentous monument.
The Wall That Heals will provide local veterans and their families the chance to memorialize those who served in Vietnam right from Kutztown. Created with
the intention to instill honor and unity across the United States, we encourage all Kutztown community members to visit The Wall That Heals from September 21st - September 24th, 2023. Click here to discover more about The Wall That Heals and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund!
