Editor’s Choice: More Fun Under the Sun

The students are gone, the wind dies down and all is silent.

Well, not quite.

The students may be gone but Fargo is hardly quieting down. There’s plenty to do in the fair city this summer, including movies, music and more.

Movies in the Park

From the months of May to August, the Fargo Parks District hosts free movies in Fargo’s parks.

Twice a month, family friendly movies will be shown as the sun goes down.

Bring your own snacks, or enjoy free Pepsi products and popcorn — while supplies last.

Downtown Fargo Street Fair

Browse all Fargo has to offer July 14 – 16 as vendors take the streets.

Local foods and shops will be basking in the sun as they move their wares outside.

The event is free for everyone and is a great way to explore Downtown Fargo.

Sleepy Hollow

Enjoy a short and flat road trip and listen to Broadway tunes in Bismarck this summer.

Sleepy Hollow Theatre and Arts Park is showing “Beauty & the Beast” and “Cabaret” in the months of July and August.

Featuring the same music and beauty as the classic Disney movie “Beauty and the Beast,” this production will allow you to re-experience the movie magic.

Ending the summer, “Cabaret” revolves around the forbidden love of a cabaret dancer and an American writer during World War II. Love, intrigue and jazzy ’40s music makes “Cabaret” a must.


On August 11, ChalkFest returns to Fargo, promising to be bigger and better than ever.

Last year, nearly 3,000 people arrived at the Red River Zoo to celebrate the music, art and fellowship of the Fargo community.

ChalkFest encourages artists of all ages and levels to decorate the sidewalks around the Zoo. While the main event is definitely the chalk competition, there is plenty more to keep you busy.

Live music, local food, bubbles, yoga and much, much more, ChalkFest is a great way to let summer out with a bang.
