2018: A Year of Wonder


The 2018 Saint Paul Festival & Heritage Foundation welcomed dozens of members and supporters to Hotel 360 on August 1 for the Annual Meeting, a presentation of the year’s big events – the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, Cinco de Mayo – West Side Saint Paul, Spirits of Carnival fundraiser, and more!

The Annual Report included highlights from the Winter Carnival, including the Ice Palace, Olympic Committee’s Team USA WinterFest, and welcoming Super Bowl fans from across the country! We also recorded an incredible attendance of 600,000+ guests, 2 million+ reach on social media, and 3.9 Billion media impressions!

Cinco de Mayo – West Side Saint Paul was another successful event, featuring brand new attractions like Lucha Libre Live in the Sports Zone and 3 stages of entertainment. The event welcomed over 65,000 attendees and reached more than 220,000 people on social media!

Spirits of Carnival was a wonderful spring fundraiser, welcoming more than 225 guests to Holman Field for an evening of entertainment, tastings from local food and drink vendors, socializing with Foundation supporters, and bidding on 100+ live and silent auction items!

The Annual Meeting was spent connecting with friends and learning about past events and upcoming fundraisers and events hosted by the Foundation.

Behind the Scenes at TCL

In July, members and supporters of the Saint Paul Festival & Heritage Foundation joined us at Hubbard Broadcasting in Saint Paul, the home of WCCO, Twin Cities Live, KS95 and more great Twin Cities stations, for a live broadcast of Twin Cities Live and a special tour behind the scenes of this broadcast giant.

We learned about the unique operations of the different studios, got a glimpse of the green screens for your favorite news backdrops, and caught Moon & Stacy live on-air! The tour was a great way to cap-off a fun event after joining the set of Twin Cities Live.
