What is Ypsi Real?
This is a movement. A movement that started with the people of the Ypsilanti Area. A pride that has created a sense of connectivity between independent businesses, tourism, economic development, government, community members, and beyond. It’s more than “community branding.” It’s a grassroots effort that we’re hoping you can help spread.
Here you’ll meet the talented, the fascinating, the proud. Artists with the room to create. Entrepreneurs with the freedom to risk. Students with the arena to question. History buffs with the opportunity to explore. Here, we value authentic conversation over created facade. We value passion over promotion. And we value uniqueness over the expected. Ypsilanti. We are unfiltered. We are authentic. We are… real.
