WEST FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - The 40th Anniversary of the Big Iron Farm Show is slated to happen in September amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show will go from Sept. 15-17 at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds in West Fargo.
A release from the fairgrounds say the farm show is committed to the ag industry and understands the important role it plays in the area.
