A group of 11 Red Wing residents attended a Blandin Foundation Academy for Community Engagement training session last November. Participants identified local tourism as a topic for Red Wing’s World Café, a public discussion to be held March 22 at Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical.

Changing the conversation


Discussions about economic development and tourism in Red Wing have been going on for years, but a new event later this month looks to take the conversation in a new direction.

Tourism will be the focus of Red Wing’s World Café, a community discussion 9 a.m. to noon Saturday March 22 at Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical. The catch is that talk of past attempts or failures will not be allowed.
