JOIN US FOR WELCOME WEEK 2019 SEPTEMBER 12-18 This September, MSP Welcome Week returns to celebrate and connect new neighbors throughout Minneapolis-Saint Paul. As part of the second annual week long event series, a variety of partners will welcome thousands of people – newcomers, MSP lifers, and everyone in between – to MSP through events, meetups, and social campaigns. Last year, more than 1,200 MSP Welcome Week event attendees from 38 states made their way to 23+ venues across MSP. In a follow-up survey, nearly three-quarters of attendees said they made a meaningful connection at one or more of these events. Happy hours, MN United matches, museum community meetups – you name it, MSP Welcome Week has something planned for everyone. Here's how you can get involved: • Attend an event or meetup: Browse the line-up of events taking place at a wide range of venues. Keep an eye for more event listings and details in the upcoming weeks! • Welcome someone new to town: Invite a new neighbor, family member, or coworker and share your experience using #MSPWelcome for a chance to win prizes • Host your own event: Propose your own meetup and let us help you get started with a welcome kit, volunteer materials, and more.
