Over the past five years, Folkways has become the face of some of the area's most vibrant cultural events and experiences. Without their vision, we would not have local treasures like Downtown Fargo's Red River Market, Night Bazaar, Canoe Parade, Log the Sauna and Christkindlmarkt. With their roots in the Midwest and their life experiences worldly, founders Simone Wai and Joe Burgum have made a career of gathering inventive inspiration, both at home and afar. This month, we invite you to meet the team, find out what inspires their creativity, and how each carefully curated experience impacts our community.
Midwest Nest loves the culture from the upper midwest, and we are excited to share stories from around the area.
