Welcome to Portland’s most dog-friendly street.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Mississippi Avenue small businesses are struggling to survive. Some have had to close their doors, lay off employees, limit hours or offerings, or shut down entirely.

To learn more about which businesses you can still patronize or how you can support our street, click here.

We’re a North Portland neighborhood with a lot of history and a ton of love.

The mission of the Historic Mississippi Avenue Business Association (HMBA) is to promote, develop, and preserve the North Portland business community as a desirable and vibrant place to work, shop, and live.

Every year, we put on special events like the Mississippi Street Fair, Giving Tuesday, Halloween Trick or Treat, Ice Cream Socials, and the a holiday celebration as fun ways to foster connections as neighbors and community members, and give back to deserving local organizations.
