MinnPost Festival is a week-long series of engaging conversations with some of the most insightful minds from politics, media and culture. Our amazing lineup of sessions with national and local speakers — all presented virtually, April 5-9 — will give you a deeper understanding of the people and ideas shaping civic and cultural life in this moment.

Special thanks to Executive Presenters: Ellen Archibald, Jim & Joy Erickson, Joel & Laurie Kramer, and Karen Sternal & Lowell Pickett.
