"Isn't the State of the State speech usually held at noon?" someone asked me. It was scheduled for noon fourteen times in the past thirty years. But an evening time is not uncommon; on nine occasions back to 1983 governors delivered speeches at 6:30 p.m. or later.
On the table below, each speech was held at the Capitol unless another location is listed. For more information on State of the State speeches and links to the text (and video when available) see the Library's Gubernatorial Addresses to the Minnesota Legislature page.
