“You betcha!” 

“You’re darn tootin’!” 

“So ya went and married Norm Son-of-a- Gunderson!” 

For better or worse most of the country only knows Fargo for the Coen Brothers’ movie. It’s time we start embracing our claim to fame. That’s exactly what the Fargo Fest hopes to do. On Friday, Sept. 28 Fargo Fest will kick off in downtown Fargo to celebrate all things Fargo.

At 6:30 p.m. the festivities will kick off at the Fargo Theatre with performances from comedians Amber Preston and John Deboer. Both of these comics have gained national attention but hail from the Fargo-Moorhead region. At 7:45 p.m. they will give away a replica of a 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass, the same car that was driven in the movie. At 8:00 p.m. the real show begins when the movie, “Fargo” will be projected on the north side of the Radisson Hotel.

This event hopes to draw attention to downtown Fargo, while bringing Fargo together. At the Fargo Theatre there will be live music by Cat Sank Trio and wine and beer provided by Howard Johnson. During the showing of the movie there will be a wine and beer garden at the Pickled Parrot along with a concession truck.
