Summer is known for outdoor fun with our parks and trails. Besides all the camping, boating, hiking and other outdoor activities, it’s also a time for many exciting events! 
Visit Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site in August for the Fort Union Rendezvous when the early 1800s come to life. Also in August, celebrate our official state fruit at the annual North Dakota Chokecherry Festival at Williston’s Harmon Park.
