The Annual Fargo-Moorhead Whiskey Fest was held on Thursday, April 13 at the Sanctuary Events Center. The event featured a wide variety of premium brands of Irish whiskey, Scotch, and bourbon! The Whiskey Fest acted as a fundraiser for two nonprofit organizations; the Lt. Adam Gustafson Memorial Fund and The Christmas Gift. In total, the nonprofits raised upwards of $5,000. Keep an eye out for the event’s return in the spring of 2024, and check out a recap of this year!

From start to finish, the event saw an extraordinary turnout throughout the evening’s fundraising event.
