Celebrate Moorhead with a variety of exciting and safe events for all ages! Our annual Greater Moorhead Days Celebration will look a bit different this year. Based on guidance from the State of Minnesota, events such as the Greater Moorhead Days Parade, the Wings and Wheels Fly In and Car Show, Bridge Bash, and Kids Fest have all been cancelled. This decision was not made lightly, but it is the best option to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The City of Moorhead believes it is important to continue to celebrate Greater Moorhead Days, but in a safer capacity. Events that are able to fit into the current guidelines will continue such as
the 9/11 Commemoration and Medallion Hunt. In addition to these events, alternate events will be planned to give the whole community an opportunity to share their Moorhead Spirit. For a full list of events, visit the Greater Moorhead Days page.
