The 2023 Main Street ND Summit scheduled for today and Wednesday, Oct. 24-25, in Watford City, has been postponed because of inclement weather forecasted for the area, Gov. Doug Burgum announced.

“We appreciate your understanding as this was a difficult decision made with safety as our top priority,” Burgum said. “We look forward to having the rescheduled Main Street ND Summit in Watford City, and we’re grateful for the community’s support.”

Those planning to attend are encouraged to watch the website www.mainstreetnd.com for updates on the rescheduled event.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for much of western and north central North Dakota from late tonight through late Thursday night, with 6 or more inches of heavy snow possible.
