Join Mayor Frey in Celebrating the First Minneapolis Black Business Week

Celebrating the First Minneapolis Black Business Week

Minneapolis Black Business Week highlights and celebrates black owned businesses right here in Minneapolis.

Later this month, the City will celebrate the first ever Minneapolis Black Business Week. From July 19 – July 27, the City and partner organizations will be hosting events to highlight and support black-owned businesses throughout the city.

Economic inclusion is central to the City's goals, including reducing the current racial disparities in business ownership in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Business Week highlights the contributions that black-owned businesses make to the richness and vibrancy of our community, promotes spending with black-owned businesses, and offers opportunities to connect businesses to the resources they need to thrive.

Black Business week has something for everyone. If you are a black business owner, you can sign up to have your business highlighted in the City's online directory, learn about business trends, discover what it takes to become a vendor with the City, expand your professional network and more. Everyone can participate by dining, shopping, and exercising at featured businesses; taking in a free movie screening at the Commons park; or enjoying art and entertainment at the Flow Northside Arts Crawl.
