Here's your chance to learn from the experts!

Join MNFEA on Wednesday, February 15th for a panel discussion featuring people you need to know if you ever plan to produce a festival, block party or any public event in Minneapolis. 

As a case study we'll examine a well-known Minneapolis event, Twin Cities Pride, from start-to-finish. What permits need to be filed and why do they need them? What criteria do they use to create the event site plan? What problems do they face every year and how do they overcome them? 

By the end of the event you'll walk away with exclusive "behind-the-scenes" insights and be able to keep sample copies of Pride's permits and applications. 

Our Minneapolis event panel includes:

  • Phil Schliesman - License Inspector/Events Coordinator: City of Minneapolis
  • Doug Maday - Traffic and Parking Services: Minneapolis Public Works
  • Brad Schmoll - Fire Inspection Services, Minneapolis
  • Shane Stenzel - Manager of Permits and Events: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board
  • Ryan Krick - Registered Environmental Health Specialist/Sanitarian; Supervisor: Minneapolis Health Department
  • Moderator - Kent Gustafson, Gustafson Facilitation

The mediated discussion will start promptly at 3 p.m.; please arrive by 2:45 p.m. NEW LOCATION!  Vic's Restaurant & Bar at St. Anthony Main on the Minneapolis Riverfront.

Don't miss this unique opportunity from MNFEA and apply what you've learned to your own event.
