Mission Statement

The Uptown Association is a nonprofit trade association, which promotes Uptown as a safe, prosperous, accessible, attractive, well-maintained and environmentally responsible commercial and residential area. It also exists to improve the economic stability and vitality of Uptown and to celebrate and sustain its unique spirit and sense of community. The Association welcomes diversity of all kinds and advocates the greater benefit of the entire Uptown community. Any commercial interest within the geographic boundaries can become a member of the Uptown Association.

Description

Uptown is a commercial and residential community in south Minneapolis bounded by Lake Calhoun on the west, Dupont Street on the east, 31st Street to the south and 28th Street to the north. Its hub, the intersection of Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue, is the center of a lively, upbeat business district.

Uptown is an eclectic, vibrant, business, entertainment, and constantly changing area. Restaurants, large and small, thrive in Uptown, along with movie theaters, professional offices, retail stores, coffee shops and more than 15,000 residents.

The Uptown Association was formed in 1975 as the Hennepin Lake Improvement Association by approximately ten Uptown business and property owners. Since then, it has grown to over 175 members.

The largest event the Uptown Association puts on for the community is the Uptown Art Fair. It features more than 360 award-winning artists in a variety of mediums, food and drinks, performances and other excellent entertainment. The majority of revenue from this art fair is put right back into the Uptown community.
