At the end of a boiling hot summer, Fargo-Moorhead Pride Festivals are around the corner to light up our lives. The 2017 Fargo-Moorhead Pride events are from Thursday, August 10 to Sunday, August 13 with the Annual FM Pride Parade and Rally in Downtown Fargo. Even better, FM Pride expects to draw attendees from throughout North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, and stretching into Canada, as we once again claim our spot as one of the nation’s proportionately largest PRIDE celebrations. HPR brings you the festivals’ lineup and information, to give you crazily fun days and nights. This August will be a blast!
