Welcome to Dinkytown

The Dinkytown Business Alliance welcomes the decision by the Minneapolis City Council on Historical Designation.

Jul 10

The Dinkytown Business Alliance (DBA) welcomes the decision by the Minneapolis City Council to designate parts of Dinkytown as a historical district. We recognize the debate was at times divisive, but it has now been decided and we welcome the final outcome as an opportunity to move forward as one community, one Dinkytown.

It is now time to focus on the future of our great local and regional commercial destination. The partial designation of some areas of Dinkytown as historic, speak to the nature of our commercial corridor as having a longstanding connection with the University of Minnesota, its eclectic makeup, its independent small businesses and its patrons that have added to the fabric of our community.

If you have not visited Dinkytown in a while, now is a perfect time to do so. Dinkytown remains a unique neighborhood with a diverse commercial corridor and a wide variety of entertainment and retail options that are easily accessible by all modes of transportation. Our entertainment corridor provides you the opportunity to enjoy great dining, live music, dancing and other fun options that will require several visits to fully enjoy.

We invite you to visit us on September 12th for the Open Streets event where you will find out more about how easy it is to get to Dinkytown given its recent enhancements for biking, pedestrians, and transit users.

The Dinkytown Business Alliance welcomes everyone to visit us and enjoy all our commercial corridor has to offer.
