After four years, the Minnesota State Capitol restoration project is almost complete. Thanks to the tireless work of state employees, construction workers, and craftsmen and women, our State Capitol building has been restored to its original glory. To celebrate, Governor Dayton and Lt. Governor Tina Smith invite you to join them for the official State Capitol Grand Opening Celebration over the weekend of August 11-13, 2017.
Grand Opening Celebration Activities
The weekend will offer something for everyone: a ribbon cutting ceremony, fireworks, concerts, demonstrations by artisans, and behind the scenes tours.
Please mark your calendars and plan to celebrate this summer! For a complete list of events, visit mn.gov/admin/capitol-grand-opening/.
