"MNFEA has provided some great Industry programs to support festivals large and small. The Panel last fall with many of the City of Minneapolis Inspections Departments Staff provided critical permit information along with members building new relationships with the City. MNFEA is a great way to build new relations and support for your Organization!"
- Randy Dewitz, Fanfare Attractions, CFM, CFEE

"It was a very useful event. Getting the chance  to meet the people we will be working with face to face is very helpful. Also hearing the requirements etc. in person is much easier than reading the application, website etc. The tips provided by the city people was very helpful."
- Pat Cosgrove, volunteer, Saint Paul Winter Carnival

"We do so much work by email and phone with City Departments, that it was great to have some face-to-face time with the insiders, and the opportunity to ask specific questions, as it relates to the events that we do."
- Kevin Stocks, Events Coordinator
The Beer Dabbler & Growler Magazine

"It was great to have all of the players in the same room at the same time to get questions answered and to help identify all of the steps in the process of putting on an event."
- Rosanne Bump, Saint Paul Festival and Heritage Foundation

Join MNFEA on Thursday, November 10th for a rare panel discussion featuring several people you need to know when producing a festival, block party or any public event in Saint Paul. They have the answers to get your event off the ground in the city or in one of its parks. Bring your questions about permits, hand wash stations, closing a street, or planning a 5K in the park - whatever the case may be - these professionals know it all!
