Visit Lake Street is an initiative of the Lake Street Council, a business association for the Lake Street corridor. The goal of the Visit Lake Street initiative is to promote the corridor as a vibrant destination for visitors and residents alike. The Visit Lake Street initiative is sustained by contributions from businesses, private foundations, the City of Minneapolis Great Streets program, and others. You too can contribute to the vitality of the Lake Street corridor by becoming a Lake Street Council partner or making a donation today. You can also get involved with Visit Lake Street and/or the Lake Street Council in a number of other ways.



Follow Visit Lake Street on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. After you connect with us on social media, get engaged! Tag your posts, tweets and photos with #MyLakeStreet, #VisitLakeStreet, #EastLake, #Uptown, #DowntownLongfellow, and #LynLake to be featured.



Sign up for the Visit Lake Street newsletter to be in the know about major events, new business openings, deals and more. If you live or work in the Lake Street Corridor and would like something featured in our newsletter, please email info@visitlakestreet.com.



We are occasionally in need of volunteers for events and projects. Send us an email at info@visitlakestreet.com to be added to our volunteer list.



The Lake Street Council invites any business, community organization, commercial property owner, foundation, or interested party to become a partner! Partnerships are not limited only to organizations located within our boundaries. We are grateful for the partnership and support we receive from businesses in downtown Minneapolis, in St. Paul, in the greater Twin Cities metro area, and beyond. Visit the Lake Street Council’s website to become a partner today.



Occasionally we sell Visit Lake Street merchandise like reusable grocery bag, winter hats, mugs and magnets. These items help support or work developing Lake Street as a vibrant commercial corridor for local businesses. Visit our online store today!
