Fargo has always been a happening place, and 2021 is going to be no different. Kicking the summer off is Ribfest (June 6-11),  an event full of delicious ribs, live music and ice-cold beer at the FARGODOME.

July is bustling with the Red River Valley Fair (July 9-18) and the Downtown Fargo Street Fair (July 15-17), and Red River Market also happens throughout the summer on Saturdays starting in July. And the Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron takes to the skies to show off their skills during the Fargo AirSho (July 24-25).

The inaugural Craft Beer & Cider Festival (August 21-22) at Broadway Square will let you taste a variety of craft beverages from local favorites. The next weekend, Bluestem Amphitheater in Moorhead hosts the Sister Cities Smoke Out, where you can enjoy hot BBQ, beer and live music on the banks of the Red River (August 28-29).

This year, the Fargo Marathon (September 25) takes place in the fall with the same flat roads and 50-plus bands along the course that make it one of the best small-town races. Later into the fall,  German-style market Christkindlmarkt (November 18-21) will take place in downtown Fargo at Broadway Square.
