Become an Investor!

The DCP’s commitment to downtown dates back to 1969 with the incorporation of the Fargo Park and Shop later becoming the Downtown Business Association.  Over the years, the name changed to emphasize a more community approach to downtown revitalization.  This mission was expanded beyond traditional retail and special events to take on development challenges facing downtown.

Major initiatives facilitated by the DCP over the years include the adoption of the North Dakota Renaissance Zone, the Broadway Streetscape Improvement Project, Railway Quiet Zone Project and most recently the development of North Dakota’s first Downtown Business Improvement District (BID).


The mission of the Downtown Community Partnership (DCP) is to bring
together and support the businesses, promoters, advocates, and visionaries of historic Downtown Fargo and its future by connecting and partnering within our community and beyond.


Our Vision is to promote and expand the Downtown as the preferred destination with a strong sense of place filled with vibrant culture, art, and commerce. To be the signature destination that provides an extraordinary sense of place for those who call it home and a magnet for worldwide guests.
