The First City On The Mississippi

Bemidji, Minnesota home of Ojibwe Forest Rally 2007 Rally America Rally of the year and Round 7 Of the Rally America National Championship

Bemidji lies on the southwest shore of Lake Bemidji, the northernmost lake feeding the Mississippi River and, as such, is deemed “the first city on the Mississippi.” The statues of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, local landmarks, are downtown on the lakefront.

The City of Bemidji acts as a regional center for shopping, arts, entertainment, educations, health services, worship, and government services. It is generally accepted that Bemidji serves an area of 60 miles radius from the city center. This fact places the Bemidji area population at around 160,000.
