Event Components:

Broadway Square and the ND Film Society have gathered a few choice pre-recorded messages from celebrities who worked on either the film or tv versions of Fargo. These messages were recorded just for this event’s Fargo crowd, so the message is sure to be unique and special! These clips are played in the two hours leading up to the film screening. The screening of the 1996 cult classic film, Fargo (R) begins at 4:00 pm.

 

Synopsis: A lot can happen in the middle of nowhere.  
Jerry works in his father-in-law's car dealership and has gotten himself in financial problems. He tries various schemes to come up with money needed for a reason that is never really explained. It has to be assumed that his huge embezzlement of money from the dealership is about to be discovered by father-in-law. When all else falls through, plans he set in motion earlier for two men to kidnap his wife for ransom to be paid by her wealthy father (who doesn't seem to have the time of day for son-in-law). From the moment of the kidnapping, things go wrong and what was supposed to be a non-violent affair turns bloody with more blood added by the minute. Jerry is upset at the bloodshed, which turns loose a pregnant sheriff from Brainerd, MN who is tenacious in attempting to solve the three murders in her jurisdiction. 

Local small-business vendors including Jay’s Smokin’ BBQ, the Boiler Room and Freddy's Lefse are bringing out and offering up their unique takes on classic Fargo foods, including hotdish (with brisket instead of ground beef), vegan chili, Swedish meatballs and lefse. Local craft beverages are provided by Fargo Brewing Company and Flannel Fizz with Pepsi products available in the Skate Shack.

In collaboration with the Fargo Brewing Company, try the new Hip to be Square Pale Ale debuting at this event! This craft beer is packed with Citra hops, prized for their intense citrus aroma and flavors.

Attendees are encouraged to come to The Square in their Fargo-est of Fargo attire to showcase notable Fargo fashion. And don’t be afraid to go overboard! 

Masks are required, but ear-flap hats, moon boots, crazy sweaters, flannel and poofy mittens are also strongly encouraged.

Nature of the North is offering Surviving Fargo workshops that, in a comical yet serious way, teach people the ins and outs of living in and surviving life in Fargo. These workshops occur every half-hour leading up to the 4:00 pm screening (2:30, 3:00 & 3:30 pm).

 

The ND Film Society is hosting Fargo movie and tv series trivia segments every half-hour (2:45, 3:15 & 3:45 pm) with fun prizes awarded to the winners.
