About Chameleon

An initiative of the mpls downtown council, Chameleon is dedicated to the experiential and economic vitality of downtown Minneapolis. We pursue this goal through:

  • Short-term pop-ups and long-term incubation with BIPOC- and women-owned businesses
  • Retail-centered events that draw shoppers and generate excitement downtown
  • Ongoing training and support for retail entrepreneurs

located throughout downtown.

From pop-up potential to long-term incubation, we are interested in furthering the ongoing success of downtown Minneapolis and support successful makers and shop owners. Get to know our Chameleon Shoppes located throughout downtown.
