The DBPA would like to welcome you to the "heart" of Minot, North Dakota. Our past is rich in history, tradition, and community.

Established as a railroad community in the mid 1800's, Minot's downtown district is one today that reflects the distinctive history of turn-of-the-century architecture, while providing all the products and services expected in today's marketplace. A rich heritage and variety of shopping thrive in Historic Downtown Minot. The continued efforts of private business owners and community involvement have preserved some of the area's most interesting properties and trades.

The Downtown Business & Professionals Association, a non-profit corporation, is organized to promote the businesses of downtown Minot, North Dakota. Membership in the DBPA shows support for the downtown community, and gives businesses the chance to highlight their offerings through the many downtown promotions scheduled throughout the year. Downtown events attract thousands of people per year to visit, shop, and dine. During Wine Walk Event alone, over five thousand dollars was raised towards the continued beautification of Minot's downtown area.
