September 24-26
Veterans Memorial Arena, West Fargo ND

Roughrider Ink & Iron Expo (RIIE) is a celebration of tattooing artistry and motorcycle building. Each year ink and oil-stained artists gather to share their familial passions and bonds at RIIE.

Aimed at providing education, recognition, and empowerment, RIIE creates an environment equally approachable for the novice as well as the most hard-core among all artists, enthusiasts and fans. RIIE stands by its commitment to give back to the community and by donating a portion of ticket sales and auction proceeds to Make-A-Wish® North Dakota.

Friday: 2pm to 11pm
Saturday: 10am to 11pm
Sunday: 10am to 6pm
