Second Fargo Fest set for Sept. 28FARGO – Fargo Fest returns this year to downtown on Sept. 28 for another evening filled with events celebrating the city named for it.
This is the second year of the festival, which kicks off with a pre-show at 6:30 p.m. at the Fargo Theatre with John Deboer and Amber Preston, two comedians with local ties. The band Cat Sank Trio and other local theater acts will also perform.
After the pre-show, a special Fargo Fest vehicle will be raffled off, with proceeds benefiting the New Life Center in Fargo.
Starting around 8 p.m., the movie “Fargo” will be shown outdoors on the side of the Radisson Hotel.
Seating areas will be available for the movie, and the public is encouraged to bring their own chairs. The Pickled Parrot will host a beer garden during the movie.
Tickets for the pre-show cost $5 in advance or $7 the day of the show, and raffle tickets for the Fargo Fest vehicle cost $5.
