Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcase attendance passes 36,000

More than 36,000 shoppers – a new record – participated in the four Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcases in November and December 2014.

“Attendance at the Fargo and Grand Forks Showcases set new records,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. “Bismarck was again the largest event with more than 11,900 shoppers.”

Goehring said the numbers reflect the continued and growing popularity of the Pride of Dakota program with both shoppers and members.

“North Dakotans look forward to the annual Holiday Showcases, knowing they will find unique, high quality products while supporting our state’s small businesses,” he said. “At the same time, Pride of Dakota member companies know the showcases draw people who are specifically looking for locally-made products.”

The Fargo Showcase, Nov. 21-23, attracted 10,589 people, almost 900 more than the previous record. Attendance at the Grand Forks Showcase, held Nov. 8-9, was 6,893, compared to 6,331 in 2013. The Minot Showcase drew 6,592 customers.

Many shoppers took advantage of the half-price admission offer by bringing their own reusable shopping bags. As a measure of appreciation for service men and women – all active and retired members of the armed forces and their families – also paid half-price admission.

Jim Ekren and Sheila Renner each won $250 in Pride of Dakota bucks in the Pride of Dakota passport program; Gay Seelig and Diane Urlacher each won Pride of Dakota gift boxes. The North Dakota Ethanol Council and the North Dakota Corn Growers Association sponsored the passport program.

Administered by North Dakota Department of Agriculture Marketing and Information Division, the Pride of Dakota program provides member companies with cooperative marketing and promotional events, such as in-store demonstrations, Pride of Dakota Day and the Holiday Showcases and Harvest Showcases. The program also provides educational opportunities and representation at regional, national and international marketing expositions. More than 500 North Dakota companies are Pride of Dakota members.

Holiday Showcase returns to Bismarck Event Center

The largest-ever Pride of Dakota Holiday Showcase returns to the Bismarck Event Center, Friday through Sunday, Dec. 5-7.

“With 205 Pride of Dakota companies in 282 vendor booths, this is a great opportunity to do your holiday shopping,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. “Shoppers will find a tremendous variety of foods and condiments, decorative and gift items, sporting goods, jewelry, recordings and much more.”

Showcase hours are 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday. Admission is $2 per adult.

“Shoppers will get a free reusable, cloth bag with their paid admission,” Goehring said. “These bags can be used for other holiday shopping, trips to the grocery store and more.”

Shoppers who bring their own reusable bag get $1 off their admission.

Goehring said paid admission also includes a Pride of Dakota Passport.

“Take your Passport to each of the three stamping stations in the Event Center Exhibit Hall,” he said. “A volunteer at each station will stamp your passport which you can enter in a drawing for $250 in Pride of Dakota bucks. This prize money can be spent at the Showcase, online or directly through a Pride of Dakota member company.”

The drawing will be held at 1 p.m., Sunday. Participants need not be present to win. A second drawing will be held at 3:45 p.m. for a Pride of Dakota gift basket valued at $100.

Goehring said as a measure of appreciation for service men and women – all active and retired members of the armed forces and their families – save $1 on admission with military identification.

Parking is free. Goehring reminded shoppers that they should use the parking lots south of the Civic Center and to enter the facility through the southwest ticket entrance.

Shoppers who bring their own reusable bag get $1 off their admission.

Goehring said paid admission also includes a Pride of Dakota Passport.

“Take your Passport to each of the three rooms in the Civic Auditorium with vendor booths,” he said. “A volunteer in each room will stamp your passport which you can enter in a drawing for $250 in Pride of Dakota bucks. This prize money can be spent at the Showcase, online or directly through a Pride of Dakota member company.”

The drawing will be held at 1 p.m., Sunday. Participants need not be present to win.

Goehring said as a measure of appreciation for service men and women – all active and retired members of the armed forces and their families – save $1 on admission with military identification.
