30th Pride of Dakota Day slated July 23 at ND State Fair

BISMARCK -- Companies from across the state will offer samples and sales of their products at the 30th annual KMOT Pride of Dakota Day at the North Dakota State Fair in Minot on Monday, July 23.

“You’ll find a wide range of quality Pride of Dakota products, such as food and condiments, artwork, books, apparel, jewelry and much more,” Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said in a release. “It’s a great time and place for fairgoers to meet, shop, and share lunch.”

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. near the southwest corner of the fairgrounds. The Pride of Dakota lunch, which costs one dollar and consists of a hot dog, chips and milk, will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the release said.

Proceeds from the lunch, sponsored by Cloverdale, Dean Foods, the Northern Plains Potato Growers Association and Pan-O-Gold Baking Co., benefit the North Dakota FFA Foundation.

The Pride of Dakota Anniversary Social begins at 3 p.m., with plenty of samples and chances to win prizes.

A non-perishable food donation will give fairgoers a dollar off their gate admission on Pride of Dakota Day, the release said.
