Faith Based Meetings
Faith is woven into Minneapolis.
Minneapolis is a city that was founded by religion, a city where citizens showed pride in their community by building churches in the 1800s. A city where the first basilica in North America was built.
Minneapolis is home to one of the most diverse religious landscapes in the whole nation. What once was a predominately Christian atmosphere has morphed into a city that has more than 52 denominations and faiths representing most all of the major religions in the world. Minnesota is home to some 2,500 Tibetans and has the second largest concentration of Tibetans in the United States, and Minneapolis has the largest Somali population in the United States. We're a melting pot of ideology, weaving and fusing together to paint the vibrant picture you see today.
The convergence of faith has brought out the best in the communities, including accolades highlighting safety, good health, diversity and volunteerism. And along with our faith-based community, we're a top-flight destination in the nation because we make our visitors feel like family. Hold a meeting at the Minneapolis Convention Center and they'll go the extra mile to make you feel at home. Take a kayak tour on the mighty Mississippi River and the guides will show you around like you're a long-lost family member. Minneapolis has personality, and the people that make up this city are personable beyond belief.
