Welcome to Bemidji, MN

As the First City on the Mississippi and home of the legendary Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, Bemidji is rich with natural and historical amenities. However, many who visit are surprised to learn there is so much more.

Our thriving community is the definition of small town life with an urban feel. While visitors and residents enjoy the endless bounties of the great outdoors, they can also experience state-of-the-art technology, healthcare, entertainment and more.

We invite you to take one step further and discover everything that Bemidji has to offer.
