State Capitol to host Pride of Dakota Day

BISMARCK – More than 50 companies will transform the statehouse into a North Dakota products shopping mall during the annual Pride of Dakota Day at the State Capitol, Thursday, March 20.

“This is an opportunity for Capitol visitors, legislators and state employees to shop for high quality Pride of Dakota products and to meet the people who make them,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. “You can see, sample and buy the finest in foods and condiments, decorative items, jewelry, art and much more.”

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Capitol's Memorial Hall and Legislative Hall on the first floor and the west end of the ground floor.

Administered by NDDA's Marketing and Information Division, the Pride of Dakota program provides member companies with cooperative marketing and promotional events, such as in-store demonstrations, Pride of Dakota Day and the Holiday Showcases. The program also provides educational opportunities and representation at regional, national and international marketing expositions. More than 500 North Dakota companies are Pride of Dakota members.
