About Fargo-Moorhead Pride
Fargo-Moorhead Pride is a volunteer-run organization operated by the FM Pride Planning Committee. Each year’s Pride celebrations draw attendees from throughout North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, and stretching into Canada, as it claims its spot as one of the area’s largest rural pride celebrations!
Fargo-Moorhead Pride began in 2000, with the very first Pride Parade marching down Broadway in downtown Fargo. Before, small groups of local LGBT individuals gathered privately in backyards and at park potlucks. It was this act of courage of those first parade marchers that paved the way for the community to come together and celebrate diversity, promote equality, show passion, and provide education in our community and beyond.

The parade will begin on 28th ave s near M State and then turn north on 20th st. s. It will keep traveling north on 20th st. to 20th ave. s., turn onto 19 1/2 st. s., and travel south to end at 24th ave. s. near M State. Parking will be available in the north and east lots of M State and on the street where permitted.
What are they hosting?
Overall, Pride in the Park is one of the most attended and beloved events by people of all ages! Pride in the Park consists of hundreds of vendors, fun and interactive activities for kids, delicious food trucks, and live entertainment that draws nearly 3,000 spectators annually. But FM Pride celebrations span far outside of just the parks
Why is this important?
FM Pride unites and engages individuals and organizations to empower, educate, and support the LGBTQ Community and promotes a positive image in the Fargo-Moorhead area and throughout North Dakota through community activities and services that are open and inviting to everyone in the community, providing a safe environment in which individuals feel free to celebrate their relationships.
