Downtown Placemaking

Strengthening Downtown Faribault 

through COVID and Beyond

COVID-19 has contributed to the challenges facing Downtown Faribault, between a number of Executive Orders forcing small businesses to close their doors to decreased foot-traffic with the uncertainty of public gathering. The COVID-19 Pandemic has hit our Downtown in crisis, and we want to ensure our businesses feel supported!

The City of Faribault will be hosting a 1-hour webinar with 30-minutes of guest presentation from The Musicant Group. We hope that providing this small bit of commitment for our Downtown businesses, it will in-turn spin opportunities for businesses to collaborate with one and other and ignite new opportunities for Placemaking in our Downtown. Now more than ever, we know the importance of these initiatives for businesses, community facilities, and neighborhoods across Faribault!

Please join us! Wednesday December 9th from 8:30-9:30am. For registration details, please email Economic Development Coordinator - Samantha Markman - at
