Attend an event or meetup

This September, the region’s weeklong celebration returns to welcome and connect new neighbors throughout Minneapolis-Saint Paul.

As part of the second annual event series, a variety of partners will welcome thousands of people – newcomers, MSP lifers, and everyone in between – to MSP through a series of events, meetups, and social campaigns.

Of the tens of thousands of people who move to MSP each year, no two are exactly the same. That’s why MSP Welcome Week works to reach everyone who identifies as a newcomer to the region through a diverse line-up of opportunities. The goal? Provide a broad range of opportunities to enjoy MSP and get connected to the communities that make this place great.

This celebration is a project of Make It. MSP., fueled by organizations and volunteers throughout the region working together to help welcome and connect newcomers. We think they’re pretty great. You will, too.
