This Weekend is a Foodie’s Fantasy

If you’re a food lover or just looking for something fun to do, this weekend has no shortage of events in the area.

The 10th annual Grand Cities Art Fest will be held in downtown Grand Forks on Saturday and Sunday, bringing with it not only dozens of exhibitors, but some tasty options if you’re hungry.

Grand Cities Art Fest

While art is nice and all, I’m mainly interested in the food. A few years ago, the Famous Dave’s truck came up from Fargo, so that was reason enough for me. I’m not sure what exactly will be available as far as vendors, but you’ll no doubt find something to your liking. The event starts Saturday at 10 a.m.

Also, the annual Rhubarb Festival is Saturday at University Lutheran Church in Grand Forks from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. WDAZ anchor Terry Dullum will be there as a judge. Rhubarb desserts, pies and rhubarb shakes are available, among other things.

And who can forget Rib Fest in Fargo? Events on Saturday include stage shows by A Touch of Magic, Penny and Pals, and much more if you’re trucking around tykes.

Musical entertainment includes Trixter, Firehouse and Warrant, followed by a fireworks display.

There are seven barbecue vendors at the festival and ice cold beverages to wash it down.

Just a heads-up: it is going to be pretty darn hot this weekend, so be prepared.
