The International Potluck Summer Music Festival will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the Heritage Garden and Amphitheatre in Moorhead. The event is free and open to the public and features live music and family-friendly entertainment.
The festival will also feature a performance by children attending the event. The children’s performance will be coordinated by Musical Bridges, an organization that connects culture among children through music and interactive learning.
“Our mission is to connect people through food and storytelling.” said Peter Schott, founder and organizer of the Fargo-Moorhead International Potluck. “Music and dance are powerful ways to share a cultural story in ways that transcend any cultural differences.”
The International Potluck is an ongoing group of community members interested in connecting with others through shared food and stories. Monthly gatherings are scheduled throughout the Fargo-Moorhead community for residents to pair potluck dinners with conversations around culture. All potlucks are free and open to the public. While bringing a food dish important to an individual’s heritage or culture is encouraged, individuals are not required to bring a dish of food.

In event of rain or inclement weather, the event will be moved to Olivet Lutheran Church on South University Drive in Fargo.
