Minnesota’s 2022 50 Over 50 Celebration
Quincy Hall, 1325 Quincy St NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413
October 25, 2022
Pollen and AARP Minnesota are proud to present the 2022 50 Over 50 list. Join us as we recognize and celebrate 50 incredible Minnesotans over the age of 50 who are challenging outdated beliefs about aging, living life on their own terms, and improving the lives of others.


We’ve been showing up and creating and surviving. We have all been Up-to-Something. And we deserve a space to celebrate, reflect back on the past two years, and gather in this new weird world. On June 30, the Pollen community came together to practice being human again.
