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 full schedule can be found on our September calendar or on Facebook or as this Microsoft Word WW-List-of-Events file. PDF coming soon.
- Fargo is a Welcoming America welcoming community.
- National Welcoming Week will see close to 300 communities put on events that promote the social and economic integration of newcomers to communities.
The major sponsor for Welcoming Week is the Fargo Human Relations Commission.
