About Fargo By Fargo

Fargo By Fargo is a special annual magazine that is direct mailed to every residential mailbox in Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo and surrounding areas. More than 100,000 magazines are printed and shipped to create as much of an impact as possible.

The entire mission of Fargo By Fargo is to tell what Fargo means to everyone who lives in the community. Where most communities have a visitor’s guide that talks about the community in a very superficial level, Fargo By Fargo is an insider’s guide that will tell the stories of the people who make this community great. We will be interviewing dozens of people and asking them everything ranging from their favorite lunch in town to what everyone can do to make this community better.

“At Spotlight Media, we believe in supporting our community,” said Editorial Director Andrew Jason. “Fargo By Fargo is all about sharing what makes our community special. There’s no better way of celebrating our region than by reaching out to our talented arts community and seeing how they can visualize what our community looks like.”
