Main Street Believers 

A few McMinnville Natives got together and wanted to be the change and help revitalize downtown McMinnville.  That was the start, the dream to create a better downtown that people would come too. 

Main Street McMinnville started in 1999.  Now over 23 years later, we have a beautiful revitalized downtown, that is bringing more people to McMinnville everyday.  We hope to continue that growth through expanding our revitalization efforts of our downtown. 


Our mission is to establish a partnership between the public and private sectors dedicated to the continued revitalization of downtown McMinnville, with emphasis on community livability, economic restructuring, and historic preservation.


Our vision of historic downtown McMinnville is to create a safe, culturally rich and architecturally preserved downtown which is vibrant and eye-appealing, family and community-oriented, and commercially viable.

Main Street America

We are a national accredited Main Street America Community. Main Street America is also a special mark of distinction. It is a seal, recognizing that participating programs, organizations, and communities are part of a national movement with a proven track record for celebrating community character, preserving local history, and generating impressive economic returns.
Our organization advocates for successful small businesses, the protection of our community's built heritage, and vibrant public spaces in the heart of our city. We want to organize community events to draw people downtown and plug people into our historic downtown and community.
