‘Tis the Season! Here’s a list of holiday events in Downtown Fargo you’ll want to make sure are on the calendar.
Folkways is back with their magical Christkindlmarkt — four days of festive cheer featuring the Outdoor Winter Wonderland, Gift Market, and Bier Hall at the Fargo Civic Center. With food, live musical performances, art demonstrations, holiday treats, and activities for the kids, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Tree Lighting at Broadway Square
Fargo’s version of New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza comes to life as the Fargo Park District lights the 32-foot-tall Christmas tree at Broadway Square for the season.
Nov 26 & 27
PLAID Friday & Small Business Saturday
Plaid Friday celebrates the diversity and creativity of local, independent businesses. It’s a fun and laid-back alternative to your typical Black Friday; holiday shopping without the big-box madness! (Top tip: wearing plaid not only shows your support for small businesses, but also can unlock discounts!) The fun doesn’t stop there, though. The #ShopSmall surge continues on Saturday for another day of supporting your local.
