RiverArts is hosting Nordic Night at Memorial Park



Fargo, North Dakota – RiverArts is a summertime event put on by Moorhead Parks & Recreation on five Tuesdays.

You may anticipate cultural performances, artist-led activities, inflatables, yard games, a photo booth, and more at these events.

The Lions Club of Moorhead provides concessions, and Fargo-Moorhead Community Theater sells alcoholic beverages.

It was suggested that attendees bring a chair or blanket to relax to the sounds of Post Traumatic Funk Syndrome and interact with local businesses and organizations.

“I mean, I think it’s just important to have opportunities to bring the community together and have fun. Everyone deserves to have fun so it’s really awesome to organize these free cultural concert events in the park,” says Moorhead Parks and Recreation’s Recreation Coordinator, Josie Gereszek.

Nordic Culture Clubs distributed refreshments and offered tickets for the upcoming Scandinavian Festival in June.

Public attendance at both this event and subsequent RiverArts nights is free.
