Fargo Sister Cities
The City of Fargo has two "sister cities": Hamar, Norway and Vimmerby, Sweden.
Hamar became a sister city to Fargo in 1974 through Sister Cities International, a non-profit network which aims to strengthen relationships between the U.S. and other nations. You can learn more about Sister Cities International on the group's Web site.
Hamar's mayor and town clerk visited Fargo in 1974. A delegation from Fargo visited Hamar in 1975. Since that time, officials from the two countries have made international visits every few years. You can learn more about this sister city on the Web.
Vimmerby became a sister city of Fargo and Moorhead in 1987. Officials have exchanged visits between cities five times since this partnership began. The Vimmerby tourist bureau offers more information about this city.
