North Dakota is home to several unique and beautifully entertaining events. The state’s largest event, the North Dakota State Fair, takes place July 21-29, 2023, and hosts over 300,000 people from across the U.S. and Canada. Fairgoers will enjoy food, rides, concerts, shopping and North Dakota culture on display. 4-H and FFA fill the center and livestock barns with exhibits and livestock, and commercial vendors showcase the hottest products out today. There are various daily events and free stage entertainment, and the 2023 Grandstand line-up includes Eric Church, Whiskey Myers, Jelly Roll and Five Finger Death Punch.
The United Tribes Technical College International Powwow takes place September 8-10, 2023, and is one of the top celebrations showcasing “champion” dancers and drums from across the U.S. and Canada competing for top honors.
Powwows are a celebration of life within Native American culture, beautiful events involving many different colors, styles, dances and songs. The celebrations often have religious significance, but are also a time for people to gather, sing, dance, feast, pray, renew old friendships and make new ones. These celebrations are still an important part of life for many Native Americans.
