What originally began as an unassuming cornfield in Chanhassen, MN, a charming suburb just 20-min southwest of Minneapolis, became a vision brought to life. Paisley Park completed its construction and officially opened its doors to creatives in 1987. It was a sanctuary where Prince could and would create, record, and perform. Soon enough, it drew in artists like Madonna, Tevin Campbell, REM, and Lizzo to record and mix albums in the studio. Along with music, the Hollywood-sized soundstage was used for various productions—from local commercials and award-winning videos to blockbuster film releases like the Sign O’ The Times Concert Film, 1990’s Graffiti Bridge, and more.

More than 35 years later, Paisley Park remains a creative sanctuary for guests to experience the rich history of the greatness created within these walls. Fulfilling Prince’s vision that one day, Paisley Park would be open to the public. This historic venue today welcomes fans, musicians, and audiophiles for tours, concerts, festivals, and special events in this corner of the Twin Cities. Come curious and leave inspired when you visit Paisley Park.
