About East Grand Forks, MN

East Grand Forks, Minnesota, was established in 1887 and is located in northwestern Minnesota on the border with neighboring North Dakota at the intersection of U.S. Highway 2 and Minnesota Highway 220. East Grand Forks runs parallel to the Minnesota-North Dakota border on the Minnesota side of the Red River of the North.

The City lies within the Red River Valley, which was formed when glacial Lake Agassiz receded to the north. The Valley has some of the most fertile agricultural soil in the world with a variety of farms which grow soybeans, sugar beets, wheat, and potatoes to name a few.

The City is characterized by small town friendliness and hosts several community events including Catfish Days, the Frosty Bobber fishing tournaments, Heritage Days, and an Arts and Crafts exposition each year. The City also participates in activities with neighboring Grand Forks, North Dakota, including the Potato Bowl parade and the First Night New Year’s celebration.

Our downtown has a variety of restaurants, with some situated along the river front. There is also convenient shopping with a variety of stores as well as a movie theater located in the downtown mall. Cabela’s is also located in downtown East Grand Forks and has several displays of live fish indigenous to Minnesota as well as a static display of a variety of wildlife. The Red River State Recreation Area is located within walking distance of downtown and restaurants and provides year-round facilities for camping, fishing, and RV parking.
