  • Easy place to get to, lots of free parking. Close to lake walk site, washrooms in area as well. This area connects with the superior hiking trail as well. 
  • For the best walk in Duluth. So pretty and it's right there on the river. Maybe a ship or boat will come into harbor. 
  • Tall ships festival was great! Lots of handicraft vendors, artist booths, and of course food! There were such long lines for the ships, we only boarded two, so I would not buy the extended ship tour t...  more »

  • It's great to see what Duluth has done with this space. Certainly at one time it was more open for concerts and provided more room for multiple stages and vendors, but now the park is so much more than just a sometimes concert venue. It can be used all year round, is safer, cleaner, better laid out, has a playground, community area, clean bathrooms, ice skating, ADA compliant walking trails and much more organized parking. During the late fall and early winter it becomes Bentleville, which is something anyone who loves the winter holidays should experience. Santa close, more lights than you've ever seen in such a space, large animated light tree, fires, marshmallows, cookies, hot cocoa and just good fun winter spirit. Any time of the year is a great time to visit Bayfront Festival Park.
  • I love this venue. The Wilco show a few years back with the stage lighting flowing through the fog was one of the coolest experiences of my life.
  • I go there to take pictures and see the Tall ships this time, Its a nice place to go for walks and many Events in Duluth MN. lots of room. parking is easy also.
  • Great Venue for outdoor concerts/events in Duluth, right on Lake Superior. Close to the new Pier B Resort and within walking distance of Canal Park.
  • Great views of the harbor and downtown, usually pretty quiet and peaceful, close enough to lots of dining options, shopping options, the scenic lake-walk and hotels to make it very accessible.
