With a history as rich as the community itself, The Grand Forks Gazette has been the newspaper of record for Grand Forks since 1897. Published every Wednesday, The Gazette remains the community's foremost source for local news and information.
From regular city council coverage, to local Border Bruin hockey play-by-play, to upcoming event previews, our dedicated editorial team and contributors works tirelessly to cover the stories that matter most to our community. Providing a weekly glimpse into the goings-on of the community, our photographers capture the friendly faces of our neighbors throughout the paper. Our editorials and columns are crafted to engage readers on important local issues and to provoke community discussion on our popular Letters page.
Readers value our events page, church directory, weekly local television listings and numerous special feature pages, contests and supplements.
Our subscribers also turn to The Grand Forks Gazette as their primary source of advertising information. Our extensive classified section boasts an impressive directory of local businesses and services, as well hundreds of local bargains and best buys. Our remaining pages are consistently filled with local advertising from area businesses and organizations.
Local advertisers also spread the word about their businesses via our weekly total market coverage publication, the Weekender, which reaches 27,000 homes in the West Kootenay/Boundary region every Friday. The Weekender, produced cooperatively by the Nelson Daily News, Trail Daily Times and the Grand Forks Gazette, provides unparalleled news, arts and culture, sports and business coverage for the entire region.
For over 112 years, The Grand Forks Gazette has been an integral part of our community. We are strong supporters of local events and organizations, too numerous to list. Our staff members also volunteer their time for many local organizations and events. We are proud to call Grand Forks home, and proud to produce our community's newspaper week after week.
We hope you find our website as informative and entertaining as our weekly print editions. Welcome!
