The TBBA is the non-profit, volunteer run business organization for the Berkeley District of Denver, CO. Boundaries include Federal-Sheridan and 52nd to 38th Ave. We connect the merchants, businesses and landlords from the Tennyson/Berkeley area. We provide members with collective opportunities to network, share information and resources  and increase impressions via social media and foot traffic. We bring lively community engagements and events to the neighborhood that drive traffic with a common goal to help grow all businesses.


Our network and communication management connect our members to join forces for issues that affect all of our businesses, neighbors, clients and families.


We are a liaison and powerful collective voice to the City of Denver on local issues.


Monthly networking and informational meetings that build a true sense of community. Our communication and our comradery are what being a part of the small business community is all about. Let’s all join forces!


Opportunity to partner with the TBBA and other local businesses in community events including the Spring Festival (formerly the Easter Egg Hunt), the Berkeley Yoga Festival, the Fall Festival, and other special events coming in 2020. 


Collective marketing opportunities year round, through marketing outreach in the form of goodie bags to recipients, cross marketing with neighbors and joint efforts for special events. 


As businesses we have a shared interest to grow the district exposure making this area known to all Denver visitors as a shopping, dining, and exciting area full of wonderful local businesses and events.


When small businesses join together, they are a force to be reckoned with.  This collective force as a community transforms ONE voice into a powerful group resulting in increased business exposure, recognition and ultimately sales.  TBBA is a powerful tool in your small business toolbox that allows you access to sage advice from neighboring businesses who ultimately become friends.
