About the Event

The capitol can be an intimidating place. It's big, it's easy to get lost, and it's full of customs and rules and norms that seem... well... abnormal. So we're hosting an opportunity to come learn more about the legislative process from the people who know it best, before the next legislative session begins. 

This event is free, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. 

There is no food or drink provided, so if you want to eat or drink, BYO. 

Kids are welcome.

Wear whatever you like. 

While we'll talk about the building, and will have an abbreviated tour, we won't hit all of the stops on the regular tour. However, free 45 minute guided tours are led by the Minnesota Historical Society and will be available at noon and at 1:00pm. And, since the capitol IS the People's House, you're also welcome to wander around on your own. 

For parking information, see the Department of Administration Public Parking Page. The easiest will likely be metered street parking on the capitol grounds. For public transportation options, the Green Line has a stop right outside the capitol. 

Who is on the panel?

Because there are many, many people who have expertise at the capitol, we're not making a distinction between a "panel" and an "audience." Instead, we're conducting the Q&A as a roundtable -- we think that'll provide the best experience for all of the attendees. If you're curious, please join us! 

Why are you suggesting my question is "silly"? 

Often people classify their own question as silly, and use that descriptor as a reason not to ask it. But if you have a question, it's likely that others do too. So we're elevating the "silly" questions, and giving everybody a place to ask basic AND complicated questions without judgement. There should be no shame in obtaining information! (Same goes for "stupid" questions -- we just like the sound of "Silly Question Saturday" better than "Stupid Question Saturday.")
