Uptown’s cultural history is unique. Since the beginning, Uptown has been a shopping, entertainment, and dining destination for people of all walks of life; a port of entry for immigrants; and a home to generations of visual and performing artists. The histories of Uptown and the Uptown Chamber of Commerce are inextricably linked. After all, it was one of the Chamber’s founding members who coined “Uptown” as the name for our neighborhood. From 1923 to 2023, the Chamber has served and promoted Uptown’s vibrant business districts, connecting them to residents and visitors.The Uptown Chamber is celebrating our 100 years of service and would love for you to join us on Friday, May 5th for Be Bold and Prosper!, a celebration of our community featuring:
- Storytelling by past and present Chamber members
- Art, music, and theatrical performances
- An international menu of food and drink showcasing the tastes and talents of our members
