The first EVER Fargo Fest

Radisson HotelIt’s less than a week away now!  The first Fargo Fest is happening Thursday, September 29th in Fargo-Moorhead!  And it is about time!  This past year it has been great to see the community finally embrace the award-winning film that brought so much attention to this region.  We’ve especially gone a little wood chipper crazy around these parts too.  Of course we brought you the “stunt double” and the original movie prop to the F-M as a permanent display at the area’s visitor center.  The Maple River Winery created a special “wood chipper wine” and now the Fargo Brewing Company has released their “wood chipper IPA.”

And now to top it all off we are holding the first ever Fargo Fest.  An event to celebrate the movie ‘FARGO’.  The goal is to make this an annual event.  So far it is looking good that we can make that a reality.  There has been a lot of interest already as to what this whole “Fargo Fest” thing is going to be all about.  It’s an OUTDOOR movie event with one of the film’s biggest stars, the wood chipper!  🙂

The fun starts at 4:30pm and concludes  with an outdoor showing of the movie ‘FARGO’ at 7:30pm.  The audio will be broadcast on WDAY 970 AM so bring your lawn chairs, an AM radio and your best Fargo accent and join in the fun.  There will be a  beer garden, food, wine, a DJ pumping out the jams, contests and a lot more.  This is going to be a blast!  So far the weather looks to be perfect too!

Hope to see you there!
