Moorhead Mall Parking Ramp

Burgers, Brews & BBQ Festival

For the fifth year, the Burgers, Brews & BBQ Festival is back to entertain and feed Fargo-Moorhead. In one of the most unique venues in town, the Moorhead Mall Parking Ramp will be transformed into a rocking setting for a night of food, brews and music. Through an exciting partnership between Jade Presents and Spotlight Media, this year, festival participants will get…

  • Unlimited burger sliders and BBQ samples from 19 restaurants
  • Beer samples from local and regional breweries
  • An evening of music with Stovepipes and Alex Rossi.

Important note: Burgers and BBQ samples will be served from 5-7:30 pm. We recommend arriving earlier than 7 pm to ensure you get your hands on the delicious food. There will also be cash bars throughout the venue for you purchase drinks.

*If you buy your tickets directly at the Tickets300 box office, fees will be waived. Taxes are included in the ticket price so it is a flat $35. You can get those tickets at 306 N University Dr, Fargo.


Stay tuned for more restaurants!

Alex Rossi to bring his blues, funk and soul sound to the BBB Fest!

With almost 20 years in the music business, the Minneapolis-based musician is known for the blues, funk, and soul vibes he brings to the stage! From 8-10 p.m., Alex Rossi will be playing on the top level of the Moorhead Mall Parking Ramp. Local band Stovepipes will be opening for Rossi. With a great view of the Red River, this concert will be a street dance like none other. Entrance to the concert is included with a ticket.

You have to see this venue to believe it.

For the second year in a row, we are transforming the Moorhead Mall Parking Ramp into a rocking venue. The space will have four levels of drinking, dining and dancing. Throughout the entire venue will be games, seating and plenty of photo ops.

We’re so excited to be teaming up with Rustica to hold the official afterparty. Located only one block from the parking ramp, it is an easy walk there. From 9-11 p.m., they offer half-off price starters and pizzas!

Plan Your Trip

The Moorhead Center Mall offers plenty of parking around the mall so you will not struggle to find a parking spot the day of the event. You can park in any of the parking lots around the mall and it is a short walk to the parking ramp. Remember, be safe and plan ahead to get home safely.

The Moorhead Mall Parking Ramp will be transformed into thousands of square feet of fun with lots of room for beer sampling, food tastings, dancing and there will even be games all around the parking ramp. Rain or shine, the venue is reason alone to check out the festival.
Getting there

You can get directions to the Moorhead Center Mall here. 

You can even catch a ride to the mall on the LinkFM through MATBUS. This bus route connects downtown Moorhead and Fargo and is free to use. LinkFM will be running until 10:30 p.m. for the BBB Fest. That means you can get a free ride to Downtown Fargo from the venue. Learn more here.
