Welcome to Arlington, home of Arli-Dazzle: Probably THE LARGEST lighted Christmas parade in Minnesota, Breakfast on the Farm, Fright Night on Halloween, and Chamber Night at the Ballpark.
Arlington, founded in 1858, has evolved into a great place to visit for family fun, friendly people, and so much more.
From its early German beginnings, Arlington residents have been known for their generosity and friendly hometown attitudes. We invite you to discover the businesses, attractions, organizations, and most importantly the people who make Arlington a special place to live.
The Arlington Area Chamber of Commerce, incorporated by the State of Minnesota on June 3, 1982, is an organization of local business people and private individuals devoted to promoting the vitality of Arlington's economy/businesses and the overall life of the community as a whole.
