It has been nearly five years since Minnesota music legend Prince died. Paisley Park, his longtime base of operations in Chanhassen, marks the date of his passing with a free visitation for up to 1,400 fans (with reservations) between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Wednesday, April 21.

The visitation for his ashes will be held in the Paisley Park Atrium, and there will be no regular tours of the property that day. (For more about Paisley Park tours, read Prince’s Mystique Lives on at Paisley Park.)

“Prince’s passing remains incomprehensible to all of us,” said Alan Seiffert, Paisley Park executive director, in a press release. “So, on this day especially, we acknowledge the incredible force and inspiration Prince is in people’s lives and open up our doors for them to pay their respects.”

Guests can leave memorial items like flowers and mementos next to the Love Symbol statue outside. An online memorial will also be held at Paisley Park’s website.
