Alfresco Islands

Bring a lunch, buy a lunch, or just come on Downtown and enjoy the weather! The Downtown Community Partnership has created “Islands” of picnic tables along Broadway for all to enjoy – Alfresco style! Snag a table at anytime with your favorite local takeout, when you’re eating ice cream with your friends and family, or just to soak up some Vitamin D! These islands are set in place to create a social distance minded environment to help everyone navigate Downtown Fargo safely.


What are Alfresco Islands?

  • Alfresco Islands are set in place to create a better socially distanced environment to help the Fargo-Moorhead community and beyond feel more comfortable coming to Downtown Fargo. Each Island consists of a picnic table surrounded by safety barricades.

Who can use the Alfresco Islands?

  • Everyone is welcome to use the islands! No reservations are need – first come first serve!

How long will the Islands be set up?

  • The Alfresco Islands will be in place through the end of August.

How will the Islands stay clean?

  • The Business Improvement District (BID) will be periodically wiping down the tables as part of their daily routine. Please be courteous and clean up after yourself.

Can I enjoy an alcoholic beverage at an Island?

  • No, alcoholic beverages are not allowed at any Island.

Where are the Islands located?

This project is made possible thanks to our sponsors Fargo Parks and Interstate Parking!

Special thanks to Jade Presents and Key Contracting for helping with barricades for public safety!
