Holiday Showcase returns to State Fairgrounds

BISMARCK – The State Fair Center will be filled with vendor booths and shoppers when the Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcase returns to Minot, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 10-11.


“This is the time and place for your holiday shopping,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. “More than 100 booths will be filled with a tremendous variety of North Dakota-made foods and condiments, decorative and gift items, jewelry, recordings and much more.

The showcase is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday. Patrons receive a free, reusable shopping bag compliments of the Bank of North Dakota.

“Shoppers can find something for everyone on their list and support local businesses this holiday season,” he said. “It’s a proven formula for success for our Pride of Dakota small businesses and our state’s economy.”
