Grand Forks Fall Fair
This is the year you don’t want to miss the Grand Forks Fall Fair as the City of Grand Forks and its Volunteer Fire Fighters celebrate their 125th anniversary! The fair has been impacted by the pandemic and was not able to happen for the last two years. So, this year there’s no holding back. 2022 will be one to attend as its theme is: Let’s Celebrate!
The Fall Fair brings the community and visitors together in an annual grassroots event to celebrate the history, culture, and unity of Grand Forks. The non-profit Grand Forks & District Fall Fair Society promotes agriculture, horticulture, crafts, arts, hobbies, home cooking and food preservation throughout this exciting event.
There will be a dance on Saturday, Sept. 3, with catchy music and a saloon. The Exhibition Hall is a highlight of the fair as it features an abundance of crafts, photography, vegetables, baking, preserves, a quilt show, animals to view, and more! There will be multiple trophies to be won and the first year of a Borscht-Off. Be sure to stop by and support this amazing community event. Find more information here.
