To kick off our list for the northeast of Dakota’s we chose the ND Country Fest. This festival is a staple for the state, featuring country artists who are known both nationwide and perhaps even globally. The festival is held for 3 days, typically in the month of July in New Salem, North Dakota.
The Prairie Pothole Music Festival is another North Dakota favorite. Known as North Dakota’s premier grassroots music and art festival, the event is 3 days long with all sorts of musicians and wild activities! Hosted at the Aurora Knolls Resort and Event Center in Anamoose, North Dakota, if you’re in the city in the month of July, don’t miss this event.
You’re a blues fan who happens to live in North Dakota, then you’re in luck! The Fargo Blues Festival is held every year in August for 2-days at the New Outdoor Field. You’ll be treated to blues acts from across the nation!
While you’re on the best-behavior bandwagon, why not add something different to your bucket list of festivals?
The Elevate festival, hosted by the Scottsdale Highlands Church, focusses on the Christian genre of music and big names like Chris Tomlin and Vertical Worship are regular attendees.
As expected, the event has an upbeat, feel-good vibe and is well attended every year.
Do you like fiddles? Haha, no we’re serious! Keplin Fest is a 3-day music and camping festival held out in Belcourt, North Dakota each summer in August where you’ll find high-ass energy fiddles and good ol’ country music!
Dak Jam is a music and arts festival annually held in Minot, North Dakota. It features some cool art and alt musicians. It rocks out hard those 80s, 90s, and 2000s vibes for 2 nights in the late summer month of August.
