Star Tribune 150th Anniversary Tour

Our Story is Your Story, Minnesota

In celebration of our 150th Anniversary, we're going on the road with our sponsor, the Minnesota Lottery, to meet with our valued readers all across the state. In select communities, we'll be hosting live journalism events in collaboration with our colleagues at local news organizations. In other towns, we'll be stopping by community festivals just to say "hi." 

Come see us and join the fun!

Live Journalism Events

As Star Tribune celebrates 150 years of covering Minnesota, it will be hosting conversations with citizens from around the state on the importance of independent, in-depth journalism, and on how media is changing in the digital era. Moderator John Rash will guide a discussion about the big stories impacting communities across Minnesota and the priorities and the principals journalists need to serve the public well.

Join us and bring your opinions. We'll be listening.
