Now in its third year, Fergus Falls and SAGA Youth (Sexuality and Gender Alliance) will be celebrating its Pride celebration June 15-18.

Activities begin on the 15th at Spies Market Pavilion (117 S. Union Ave.) until 8:00 PM. This kick-off event will have both vendors and community support/educational tables.

On Friday, a Pride Party will be held to honor the late Jette Frandson – the inspiration for the formation of SAGA Youth – who passed away prior to last year’s Fergus Pride. The party will be held at Fergus Brewing (1683 Ottertail Dr.).

On Saturday evening, the Catwalk Party will return to the stage at the Dining Car #423/Steel Wheels (423 S. Cascade St.) starting at 8:00 PM.

Fergus Pride culminates with the Pride in The Park at Pebble Lake Swimming Beach (2300 Pebble Lake Beach Dr.).

With a weekend full of activities, you probably want some wind-down time. Located near the source of the Mississippi River, Fergus Falls is a center for great recreational opportunities. With the Otter Trail Scenic Byway, you can enjoy great landscapes while taking the history and the beauty of this part of Minnesota.

Why not spend the extended weekend in Fergus Falls and celebrate Pride? Lavender Magazine 2022 Community Award winner Krystyne Frandson, along with the SAGA Youth board, its members, the LGBTQ community in Otter Tail County and beyond, along with the city of Fergus Falls welcomes you!
