On the first day of summer, the Moorhead Center Mall parking ramp will once again be invaded by a bevy of hungry and thirsty people. Thursday, June 21 will see Fargo Monthly and Jade Presents come together to put on the fifth annual Burgers, Brews & BBQ Festival. Get your tickets at to be a part of the biggest party in Fargo-Moorhead.

  • Unlimited burger and BBQ samples are included with your ticket.
  • As many as 15 breweries will be involved. With your purchase of a ticket, you receive samples from them all.
  • A portion of all ticket sales will go to the Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity.

As was the case in past years, the event will run from 5 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, June 21. Enjoy all-you-can-eat sliders, BBQ samples and beer samples from local and regional breweries from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Some of the participating restaurants and breweries include:

  • Herd and Horns, Twist, VIP Room, Fargo Billiards & Gastropub, Brew Ales & Eats, Granite City, Shotgun Sally’s, Hooligan’s
  • Half Brothers Brewing, Junkyard Brewing, Prairie Brothers Brewing, Bent Paddle Brewing and more.

But that is not all. Hard to believe, right? After you fill up on burgers, beer and barbecue, head to the top level of the parking ramp to take in the musical stylings of Minneapolis artist Alex Rossi. It is sure to be an exciting experience as you watch the sun go down over the Red River with Alex playing in front. Alex and his band will play until 10 p.m.

However, you cannot enjoy any of this summer party without a ticket. Tickets are on sale now at for $35 each. That will get you access to the burgers, the brews, the barbecue and the music.

If you buy tickets directly at Tickets300 box office, fees will be waived. Taxes are included in the ticket price so it is a flat $35. You can get those tickets at 306 N. University Dr, Fargo.
