Fargo Park District is committed to the health and safety of our community. We are continuing to evaluate our response to the coronavirus situation (COVID-19) and are working closely with state and local health officials, as well as monitoring the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), for updates, resources and information.

As part of our response to COVID-19, the Fargo Park District is cancelling German Folk Festival. The decision to cancel programs is difficult for us to make, but we are keeping in line with the recommendations from the experts.

All other Fargo Park District events and programs are being evaluated on a case by case basis to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all involved. Any cancellation announcements will be posted at FargoParks.com.

Experience Germany without leaving Fargo! From Oktoberfest to Volkfests, the Germans sure know how to have a good time. Come out to this free, one day German Folk Festival dedicated to all things German culture, food, music, and fun!

Wander over into the barn to see examples of traditional German crafts. Looking for something a little more hard-hitting? Then don't miss the blacksmith set-up outside on the lawn showcasing the traditional methods of crafting metal goods.

As you are enjoying all the artisans, your nose will direct you over to the traditional German cuisines available for purchase. Enjoy lunch by Concordia Catering and then try out the kuchen by Karen's Kuchen in the Bunkhouse. For our guests 21+, head to the beer garden.
