The Garage is a collaborative coworking space in Downtown Rapid City for small businesses, nonprofits and freelance creatives. Here, our members make our community better through their innovative ideas and personal drive to do good. In addition to the day to day operation as a coworking space, we invite the community to share the space with us by hosting a variety of events such as: a monthly morning conversation series, intimate concert series, an art exhibition that changes every 2-3 months and is open to the public during regular business hours, and more.
The Garage was created as part of an effort to bring a new kind of collaborative coworking and community space to Rapid City. Our historic motor service building had exactly the right potential, in the right neighborhood. In 2014, the building was purchased and the interior renovated over the course of several months. The new coworking concept opened on September 15, 2014.
Why East of 5th?:
“Garage members love working East of 5th first and foremost because of the community of neighbors, who show up for each other and support one another in bringing new ideas to life. The fact that everyone's good work and creative ideas are encouraged and helped to grow are what we appreciate most. The gritty, entrepreneurial energy of this neighborhood fits right in with what The Garage was created to support.”
