Thief River Falls is a community of over 8,500 people. We offer many opportunities to the residents including a strong business community that provides great employment opportunities. Some of the biggest employers include Arctic Cat, known for their world class snowmobiles, ATVs and side by sides, Digi-Key Corporation, who distribute electronic component parts worldwide, and Sanford Health to name a few.
We offer an excellent school system that offers all day, every day kindergarten classes through high school. Northland Community and Technical College (NCTC) has a campus in Thief River Falls and East Grand Forks, MN and provides quality education at the college level.
Healthcare providers continue to find ways to improve and expand services. Sanford, one of those health providers, recently built a new hospital and clinic, expanded their behavioral health hospital and moved and updated their wellness center.
There are opportunities to become a part of civic or community organizations as well as the opportunity to take part in indoor and outdoor recreational activities such as indoor and outdoor hockey rinks, tennis courts, baseball fields, soccer fields, indoor swimming pool, and fitness centers. Other outdoor activities you may enjoy are fishing, hunting, riding snowmobiles or ATV’s, golfing, and biking or walking along the River Walk. There are so many opportunities to explore our beautiful community! Cultural activities are offered year round from live theater in the summer at NCTC, choir and band performances by the Lincoln High School students in the fall and spring, and other music concerts offered throughout the year. Because we are known as an agricultural community we offer an ever expanding farmers market in the summer months for all your fresh produce needs.
