  • Noontime entertainment in lobbies and public spaces on our campuses
  • Vintage vehicles on Annenberg Plaza, between the Mayo Building and Plummer Building, October 1-5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (weather permitting)
  • Heritage Exhibits at Mayo Civic Center - 30 Civic Center Drive SE, Rochester.  In a special project funded by Mayo Clinic and developed in partnership with Mayo Civic Center, existing spaces have been renamed to honor the Mayo family.  New exhibits celebrate the origins of Mayo Civic Center -- a gift to the community from Dr. Charles H. Mayo and Mayo Properties Association in 1938 -- and trace the center's colorful history from past to present.
