Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcase heads to Bismarck
The Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcase is heading to Bismarck for its last stop this holiday season. This year’s Holiday Showcase features more than 200 companies offering North Dakota-made products. Kara Haff, Ag Marketing & Business Development Coordinator for the Department of Agriculture, says shoppers will find products from gourmet food, wine, and spirits to books, art, clothing, and much more.
"Bismarck is actually our largest, highest attended show in our series of Pride of Dakota events. We have had upwards of 15,000 people come out for the show, back in 2019 we hit a record with just under 15,000. We'll be expecting anywhere from 10 to 12 thousand people to come out for the show this weekend."
Haff says people travel across North Dakota and from other states to attend the Bismarck showcase.
"We're happy to have retail stores come out and visit with companies. If they're looking to include Pride of Dakota Products in their offerings, many of our companies can establish those wholesale type orders."
The showcase will be held at the Bismarck event center on December 2nd and 3rd.
It is open from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free.
