Fargo Mom launched 6 months ago on January 22, 2020 with a team of over 30 local mom writers and a passion to connect moms in the Fargo-Moorhead community. To celebrate, the incredible team at West Acres put together a phenomenal launch party to pamper, treat, and celebrate our team! 

The Fargo Mom writing team along with their mom friends were invited to drink, dine, and sample some fun products from local West Acres retailers

CRAVE American Kitchen & Sushi Bar was on hand with drinks and delicious hors d’oeuvres. Our mamas devoured the sushi, chips and guacamole, bruschetta, cheese tray, and other yummy goodies. There was a little bit of everything to try!

We can’t wait to plan our first Mom’s Night Out event for the community, and can’t wait to transition our online community into in-person events. One of our goals in launching Fargo Mom was to offer ways for moms to connect both online and offline, and once it’s safe to gather again we will be announcing our first in-person event!

All stores in West Acres are open and ready for shopping! Please see their website to find shopping hours, options for curbside pick-up, and special events like their farmers market. To stay up to date on everyday happenings, check them out on Facebook and Instagram!
