West Fest

West Fest is an annual weeklong celebration of the community of West Fargo. The celebration includes events for children and adults and one of the largest parades in North Dakota. The events are held throughout the community the third week of September and culminates with a day of celebration in The Downtown Yards on Sheyenne the third Saturday in September.

Our parade showcases businesses and nonprofits from West Fargo and the region. It is a great opportunity to connect with the public and get the name of your organization out in the community. Floats are also entered into a competition for prizes from $500 to $1,000. To register for the parade, visit westfargoevents.com.

The grand parade starts at 12 p.m. on Saturday and the main routes runs along Sheyenne Street from Main Avenue W. to 10th Avenue W.
