For 27 years Pangea has highlighted and celebrated the diversity of our communities in and around the Red River Valley. In that time, it's become one of the community's most beloved events. A group of local chefs, musicians, artists, and merchants share the unique traditions that their families brought to the Red River Valley. Thousands of visitors join them. The museum and auditorium become an international bazaar where the flavors of chai and samosas complement the aromas of aebelskiver and lumpia and the sounds of mariachi and indigenous drumming.
At Pangea, the global roots of our community are on full display. They stretch from the Bering Sea and New England and Norway and Mexico and Bavaria and Somalia and Egypt and Vietnam and so much of everything in between.
Pangea is funded by The Arts Partnership, with support from the Cities of Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo and from Sanford Health.
Pangea is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.
