During her visit to Fergus Falls, Beth will attend a full-length concert at the Fergus Falls Center for the Arts.

The concert will feature award-winning fiddle player April Verch and Joe Newberry, who will perform a breathtaking show. The Center for the Arts invited Senator Rasmussen, Representative Fishbach, and Governor Waltz.

This event is an excellent opportunity to display the rich cultural heritage of Fergus Falls and the Upper Midwest region. It also provides business, government, and civic leaders a unique chance to discuss economic growth and foster resilient partnerships.


Beth Richardson is eager to work with everyone involved to build a brighter future for Canada and the United States. This visit will strengthen the already robust relationship between our two countries.
