Pride of Dakota hits Minot

MINOT The Pride of Dakota put on their annual Minot Holiday Showcase at the State Fair Convention Center this weekend.

More than 100 different vendors came in to sell anything and everything North Dakota.

The event is also set up to help people knock off some to-dos from their holiday shopping list.

With admission costing only $2, the event aims to highlight and preserve the unique culture of North Dakotan small businesses.

“That brand in itself, people will look for that blue and gold logo and know that those items that bear that logo were made here in North Dakota, by North Dakotans, and that they're handmade quality products,” said Kelly Wald, a NDAA Marketing Specialist.

This is not the only stop for Pride of Dakota as they will be holding a holiday showcase later this month, Nov. 17-19 in Fargo, and Dec. 1-3 in Bismarck.
