Welcoming Week

Welcoming Week 2017: Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo.  

The Fargo-Moorhead metro area will be celebrating National Welcoming Week September 14-24 with 20+ events (the number keeps growing) spread out over the 10 days.  The local theme this year is “Bring a friend, make a friend,” as organizers hope to see 2,000 people attend events (bring a friend!).  Organizers are also looking to promote a year-round welcoming community in which friendships cross national, language, and/or faith divides (make a friend).  Events are free and open to the public!

The week will start off with an International Potluck Dinner at the Plains Art Museum on Thursday September 14th at 6 pm (bring a dish and a friend!) and wrap up with an International Day of Peace ceremony at the Ed Clapp Senior Center (James Carlson Library), 4 pm, September 24th.

The major sponsor for Welcoming Week is the Fargo Human Relations Commission.
