Saint Paul Hello welcomes and connects newcomers to the city of Saint Paul and the state of Minnesota through the initiatives Welcome Hat and Nice Breakers.


Welcome Hat is a bi-monthly celebration that jumpstarts your inclusion to the local Saint Paul community through the anointment of a warm faux-fur lined hat and a showcasing of the city’s resources.

Nice Breakers is a series of co-hosted activities and events where welcoming ambassadors will introduce you to St. Paul. Make new friends and leave events with a deeper connection to your community.

Saint Paul Hello is presented in partnership with Jun-Li Wang, Curious Incident, Pollen, Minnesota Historical Society, Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce, Greater MSP and Hamline Midway Coalition with generous support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
