Welcome to Rochester Minnesota Newcomers Connection

We are excited to have you join our community!  When moving to a new city it can be hard to meet new people, choose a new doctor, or even know which restaurant has the best burgers; that's where RNC comes in.

Who are we?

Rochester Newcomers Connection (RNC) is a social club for adults and families. We are here to get you acquainted with all that Rochester has to offer and provide opportunities for you to meet new friends! From RochesterFest to Thursdays on 1st, to the local wineries, and right back to the park near your home, there's so much to explore.  We have a diverse group from young singles, to married couples, to empty-nesters, and retirees. 

Who do we serve?

We welcome anyone residing in the greater Rochester Minnesota area. Although our name contains the word ‘Newcomers’ and we maintain a 'newcomer' focus, we have found that when people have a change in life circumstances they often seek out a group such as ours.  Whether you are a new or established resident we are delighted to meet you. 

What do we offer?

RNC offers a number of ongoing activity groups and planned events where people can meet new friends, explore the city, and share hobbies/common interests. New group ideas are always welcome and we'll even help you get that group off the ground with our extensive database of other newbies to the Rochester area.
