It is open year round so stop in and talk to our Visitor Center Travel Ambassadors. We provide free wifi, popcorn, and coffee for visitors...And the bathrooms are spick-and-span! The Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center is also home to the woodchipper from the movie 'FARGO.' Stop by and have your photo taken with the infamous woodchipper! We provide the (fake) leg and bomber hats to complete the photo op. Be sure to see the Celebrity Walk of Fame outside our visitors center with star signatures and hand & foot prints in cement.

If you saw the movie Fargo you must make a stop in here. They have the original wood chopper from the movie. You can pose for a picture here and take home some fun memories!

“Very Informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Visitors Bureau was very interesting and very informative. Seeing the famous "Fargo Chipper" was pretty cool. I really enjoyed looking Walk Of Fame. A lot of famous people have visited the great town of Fargo. Anyone going to or through Fargo, North Dakota should deffinatly take time to see the Walk Of Fame at least.

“Fargo movie fans must see the wood chipper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I am a big fan of the movie Fargo and just had to get my picture with the wood chipper.They even have a Facebook page and they post guest pictures with the wood chipper on the site. Some nice post cards and apparel available for purchase. They also promote the Wood Chipper wine that we were able to purchase at a location not far from the Visitor's Center.

“Film fans can't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

The visitor's center now has the original wood chipper from the movie Fargo. The staff provides wooly hunter's cap for you to wear and they take your photo. There's also other memorbilia from the movie and there's a celebrity sidewalk outside with cement hands from everyone from Bill Gates to Metallica.
