Welcome to Uptown!
At the intersection of West Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue lies a vibrant and diverse urban community that is a destination like no other in the Twin Cities. Throughout the year, business activities and events such as the City of Lakes Loppet in the wintertime to the Uptown Food Truck Festival, Bastille Day and the Uptown Art Fair in the summer enhance the energy of the Uptown community.
The Minneapolis Regional Chamber is advocating for businesses of all sizes at all levels of government, as well as those they employ.
Business and trade associations, as well as owners and operators, from across the region have formed a coalition to work on issues that are affecting operations and employees. Together we are advocating for sensible policies and solutions that will support those that continue to do business, those that are having to adapt their business model, and those that have experienced mandatory closures. We are doing this at the federal, state and local levels. Visit toolocaltofail.com today.
