About The lights

The Lights is a vibrant, walkable area that promotes entertainment and employment in West Fargo, ND. The Lights is a public-private partnership between EPIC Companies and the City of West Fargo. The Lights Entertainment District embodies employees from both the City of West Fargo and EPIC Companies working together, for four years, to complete the vision. The goal was to create a partnership that would generate activity by public amenities that everyone could enjoy as well as a large tax base that would assist with funding the city, school, park, and county through property tax. All infrastructure, roads, and public amenities of The Lights are supported by a TIF district guaranteed by the developers of the project.

Live Entertainment District

The Lights Entertainment District features a public parking ramp, community plaza, and multi-use buildings on premise. The buildings include ECHO, EPIC, ENVY, EDGE and The Northern Lights. This area was officially defined as an entertainment district in February 2020 by the City of West Fargo planning department. This title enables the area to include additional amenities as well as community events that support retail, office, recreation, entertainment, and living for the state of North Dakota, the first of its kind.

Many events at Essentia Health Plaza are FREE to the community, such as Yoga on the Lawn, Movie Nights, Community Art Events, and more. Some events may be ticketed, such as concerts. Please review our FAQs below to answer questions regarding concerts, community events, ice skating and more.
