  • Wide open spaces. Nice views. Good sound. Fun times all around.
  • Lots of great concerts. The perfect place to fly a kite if empty.
  • 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.
  • A must see if in town breath taking view looking out over the lake
  • Beautiful - right on Lake Superior. Watch the shipping and enjoy the concerts.
