Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Will Kick Off Mayo Civic Centerís Grand Opening Celebration on May 4
5/4/2017
A community celebration to recognize the Grand Opening of the convention center expansion at the Mayo Civic Center will get underway at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 4 with a public Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in the center’s brand-new ballroom.

Speakers at the Ribbon Cutting will include:
  • Rochester Mayor Ardell F. Brede
  • Lt. Governor Tina Smith
  • Dr. John T. Wald, Mayo Clinic
  • Marv Mitchell, Chair of the Mayo Civic Center Commission
  • Joe Powers, Chair of the Rochester Convention & Visitors Bureau
After the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, the Grand Opening festivities will include guided tours, music by local musician Annie Mack, refreshments, a “Did You Know?” scavenger hunt, a photo booth, face painting, a construction highlight video, a handprint mural community art project, theatre games, and more. The event will conclude with a fireworks display at dusk. The event will take place rain or shine.

The City of Rochester, Mayo Civic Center, and the Rochester Convention & Visitors Bureau are cohosting the Grand Opening celebration, which is free and open to the public. The Rochester Art Center and the Rochester Civic Theatre are also hosting fun family activities during the celebration.

Please click here for an earlier media release detailing the new venues and features of the completed Mayo Civic Center expansion project, which nearly doubled the facility’s capacity for hosting events.

Media representatives are invited to film the Ribbon Cutting ceremony and to independently tour and film the parts of the building that are open to the public during the event. Please call Megan Malugani at 507-251-6599 if you have any questions or need assistance during the Grand Opening.
