After lengthy and thoughtful debate, the Visit Fairmont Board of Directors has decided that they cannot proceed with hosting the 2021 Minnesota Governor’s Pheasant Hunting Opener.

The decision to submit an application to host this event was made in 2019.  It was announced in October of 2019 that Fairmont was selected to host the 2020 Minnesota Governor’s Pheasant Hunting Opener.  In August of 2020, Governor Walz postponed the event until 2021.
