Fargo’s Red River Valley & Frostival
Fargo, North Dakota may not have mountains for skiing or snowboarding, but it’s a city that embraces the cool of winter like none other. The endless horizons of the Red River Valley are a perfect stage to present the beauty of winter.
From January 15, 2020 through February 22nd, winter events and activities are held every weekend during a celebration called Frostival. The festival is all about celebrating the “cool” of winter with outdoor events and family-friendly activities across our North of Normal city, Fargo, and its sister cities West Fargo and Moorhead.
Cardboard sled racing, winter kickball and disc golf, snow sculpture and beard competitions, and an undie run are just a few things to expect during the weeks of Frostival.
The festival was created to give locals and visitors alike more ways to get out and experience the winter season. It’s no secret that the cold months start to wear on people after a while. Why not make cold, cool?
It will be the cities’ 5th winter celebration. A few things have changed, however. Typically held over just one weekend, the dates have been extended to allow for much more snow-filled fun throughout the coldest months of the year.
Frostival isn’t the only reason to check out Fargo during the chilly season. Businesses and locals always find creative and beautiful ways to dress up the snow, such as:
- Pop-up snowman building events in the parks
- Glowing ice bars on the patios of local pubs
- Fat-tire biking on the frozen Red River
- Candlelight snowshoeing through state parks
- So much more
Grab your friends, bring your spirit of adventure (and maybe some mittens) and join Fargo, ND in making cold, cool.
