Are you looking for Fargo's Fourth of July events? We have a week of fun things to do for the 4th of July in Fargo.

Monday, July 1: A day celebrating all things Fargo

Since the 4th of July marks our American pride, spend July 1st at the different places around town that highlight the Fargo area's heritage.

701 Day

Celebrate North Dakota in Broadway Square with 701 Day. Enjoy entertainment like live music, participate in the interactive art piece, and take great Instagrammable photos.

201 Broadway N, Fargo


There aren't many other spots in the area that are as uniquely Fargo as Brewhlla. This food hall, shopping market, and local beer haven are the perfect places to grab a meal and a Drekker beer while cooling down inside or on their many patios. 

Plus, the fun doesn't have to stop there; Brewhalla also has an Airbnb-like hotel where you can stay as a family. 

1702 1st Ave N, Fargo | (701) 532-0506

Tuesday, July 2nd: All-American day

Breakfast Kroll's Diner

This diner is the perfect All-American stop to start your day. Being a 50s-style restaurant serving up German and American dishes since 1969, order Grandma Kroll's French Toast with kielbasa. Check out these other great breakfast spots while you're in town.

Lindenwood Park

We recommend a relaxing day in the park to continue the patriotic weekend. Rent a kayak at Lindenwood Park and hop on the Red River for an afternoon of leisure.

Hot Dog for Lunch

There's nothing quite like a hot dog to help celebrate the USA. Some local hot dog options are Hi-Ho, Moorhead Dairy Queen, Legends, and Red Hen. 

Fargo Air Museum

The Fargo Air Museum has two full hangars of aircraft and interactive displays for aviation fans of all ages.

Wednesday, July 3rd: A day of history & Vikings

Breakfast at Marge's Diner

Marge's is a homey space that feels like a mid-mod version of Grandma's living room. It is complete with a collection of salt and pepper shakers, old baking dishes, mismatched coffee mugs, and a menu full of delicious breakfast choices.

Hjemkomst Center

1st stop: The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County. The Ihdago Manipi exhibit examines Clay County as it took form on the western edge of Minnesota 150 years ago; its tallgrass prairies and forested rivers supported a unique ecosystem that included bison, wolves, beaver, and communities of Dakota, Ojibwe, and Métis people.

Also, check out the Hjemkomst Viking Ship and the Norwegian Stave Church while you're there.

202 1st Ave N, Moorhead | (218) 299-5515

Sons of Norway

Next, head to Sons of Norway and their Kringen Lounge for lunch. Start with some Scandinavian specialties (they'll be happy to explain anything on the menu).

After you refuel, it's time to continue on your tour of all things Scandinavian.

722 2nd Ave N, Fargo | (701) 232-9222

Rollo Statue & Shopping Downtown

While you're nearby, check out Rollo the Viking Statue across the street. This was one of five Norwegian monuments erected following Norway's independence from Sweden.

9th St & 4th Ave N, Fargo

Next, hit up Stabo. This store is your one-stop shop for all things Scandinavian.

Check out these top 21 places to shop in Downtown Fargo for more shopping inspiration. 

Dinner at Prairie Kitchen

This Scandinavian restaurant has local touches throughout, and the dining room feels like you're back home at your Grandmother's. Try the lefse platter and the hotdish of the moment, and then pop upstairs to the rooftop patio for an after-dinner drink.
