Critters, Crud and Mud

Living in West Central Minnesota means we have access to all sorts of nature’s gifts. Thanks to Mother Nature and plenty of rain, the golf course is gorgeous and the corn is on track to be amazing. The race track will hold its King of the Dirt Races this month – and hopefully it will NOT be muddy (although mud is exactly what we want for the Viking Challenge and Mud Run on September 19th). If you are a rodeo fan you know that mud makes for a super-fun event – horses and bulls kicking up dirt and cowboys slip-sliding all over the place.

We're thrilled that Fergus Falls is on your agenda for tourism, business or a move! Our slogan “Find Us, Lose Yourself!” challenges and invites you to come to Fergus Falls.  Relax, unwind and enjoy a refreshing environment that will leave you ready to return to everyday life invigorated and ready to go. This is a family-favorite when it comes to Minnesota vacation destinations.

The people who live and work here are proud of our community and are always eager to roll out the red carpet for visitors. We think you'll find that the friendly nature of our citizens - together with tremendous community assets - will leave you with a fabulous experience. Fergus Falls is located only 2½ hours northwest of Minneapolis-Saint Paul, and an hour southeast of Fargo Moorhead. We're right off I-94 with five exits into our thriving community.
