Location & Parking
The Star of the North conference is held at the Saint Paul RiverCentre. For convenient parking, use the RiverCentre Parking Ramp located on Kellogg Boulevard. The ramp fills up quickly – plan an early arrival or an alternate parking option on conference days to avoid traffic and delays.
Many bus lines service downtown St. Paul (the 21, 54, 61, 63, 64, and 74 buses all stop at the RiverCentre). The RiverCentre is also in walking distance of the Light Rail Central Station.
We encourage carpooling, ride-sharing, and bicycling!
