Celebrating the Fargo-Moorhead Area Through National Days

Check out these local businesses for upcoming National Day Festivities in July/August

Every day, someone on my social media feed is posting about a national day of celebration that I had no idea existed. There are so many fun national days that we here at Fargo Monthly think are not celebrated enough. That’s why we are utilizing the National Day Calendar, founded by fellow North Dakotan Marlo Anderson, to highlight some of the national days you didn’t know existed—and direct you to a few local businesses to celebrate those days!
