Governor's Fishing Opener Media Event
The Governor's Fishing Opener has been a tradition in Minnesota since 1948. Explore Minnesota Tourism seeks host communities to co-sponsor the Minnesota Governor's Fishing Opener each year. This annual event brings a large number of media to the host community resulting in radio and television reports as well as articles in publications and media websites. Destination marketing organizations, including convention and visitors bureaus, chambers of commerce and resort associations are encouraged to submit proposals. The 2017 Governor’s Fishing Opener event will be held May 11-14 in the greater St. Cloud area.
Guidelines for the 2018 Governor’s Fishing Opener will be available in August, 2017.
Proposals will be accepted from community organizations such as chambers of commerce, convention and visitors bureaus, resort associations, or a committee formed specifically for the event. Extensive community involvement and support are necessary for a successful event!
