DBPA stands for Downtown Business & Professional Association. We are local retailers, offices, banks, restaurants, and pubs that are generally located in historic Downtown Minot. We are a passionate group that cares for and invests in the heart of the city. Downtown is the center of our community, where local entrepreneurs can succeed, families and friends can create memories, and business can be conducted. It’s historic, unique, eclectic, resilient, and artistic. It’s Minot!
Events! From Thursday nights in summer to winter wonderlands and Christmas tree lighting with Santa, Fall Festivals and car shows on Main, Bunny walks for Easter, and so much more. We strive to keep Downtown fun and exciting. Our wine walks are legendary and a perfect way to explore all the great shops and restaurants along Main Street and beyond. We make it all happen.
Gorgeous flowers, planting trees, and annuals, decorating Christmas trees, cleaning the sidewalks are all things we do to keep Downtown looking it’s best.
We are the heart of Minot. We advocate for the members of our association and are involved in political issues that affect our community. We are behind the scenes working with elected leaders to make sure that we all succeed.
The DBPA board is made up of professional leaders and business owners. We know how essential good communication is, and we work hard to keep it maintained.
With our newly renovated website, it’s easy to navigate for members, customers, and clients. We work hard to make it easy for your business to be found. With the Member-Only gift card program, you can get them walking right in the front door.
Our members learn on each other, work together, and share concerns and ideas alike. We are a diverse community, all brought together to help each other and benefit from working towards a common goal.

Minot’s Downtown Business & Professional Association is organized as a 501c(6) business association. This is an IRS designation that specifically empowers the association to engage in political work and take positions on matters of importance. It is to this inherent purpose and on behalf of our mission to make downtown Minot a center of commerce, culture, and civics that we engage on issues and projects of impact to both the downtown district and our members.
