Join us for an Idea Open House in your neighborhood! We think you have great ideas for Saint Paul, and we hope you'll share them in the Forever Saint Paul Challenge. We invite you to answer to the question: What would you do with $1 million to make Saint Paul great? The best idea will receive $1 million to make it a reality! Want to learn more, submit your ideas, and talk to others about the future of Saint Paul and your community? You are invited to join us for a free, family friendly Idea Open House.
At the Idea Open House, you'll learn more about the Forever Saint Paul Challenge and have the chance to submit your million dollar ideas to keep Saint Paul forever strong. Bring your thinking cap and join your neighbors in a conversation about what you'd like to create or change for the better in your community.There is a friendly competition among the seven Idea Open Houses to see which community can offer the most ideas-- we hope that you'll offer your ideas to bring the $1 million to your area! Free food and Saint Paul-inspired activities will be provided. Anyone who submits an idea at the event will also be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift card to Black Dog Cafe.
This is a casual event. Feel free to drop in for 15 minutes, or stay for the whole event! Children are welcome to attend, and they're also welcome to submit their best ideas.
This event is generously co-hosted by the Saint Paul Riverfront Corporation, The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, Minnesota Landmarks and the James J. Hill Library.
