Fairmont Life

Welcome to the City of Fairmont, Minnesota!

Our location in the "Heart of the Midwest" is a great place to bring together friends, family or colleagues for business. And, a multitude of specialty shops offer a real shoppers' paradise. Our area lakes are a popular site for recreational activities any time of the year. If you prefer a stroll down memory lane, you will find many sites to visit, such as the Fairmont Opera House, Pioneer Museum, Sisseton Model Rail Road display, or Heritage Acres. Our recreational opportunities include an Aquatic Park, new skate park, new soccer fields, many softball diamonds, volleyball courts, and much more. We are proud of the beauty, history and prosperity of our city and surrounding area.
