Your Summer Festival & Concert Headquarters
Summer festival season is so close we can almost hear it! On a warm summer day in Duluth it doesn’t get much better than hanging out along the shores of Lake Superior. Pair the view and weather with a fun gathering or event, and you know where to find us! That is why we are so lucky to have Bayfront Festival Park right next door!
Home to a variety of activities throughout the summer, the wide open space facing the Duluth harbor is a perfect place to spend time with family and friends.
Here are some of our favorite Bayfront events, worth a trip to Duluth and a stay at Pier B to get a front row seat to the excitement!

Arguably the biggest Duluth event of the year, runners and spectators alike gather in Duluth and along the Northshore racecourse for a memorable weekend. Our property is within walking distance of the finish line, Canal Park events, and of course Rock the Bayfront.
Duluth Fourth Fest (July 4)
Hosting Duluth’s Independence Day celebrations, Bayfront Park features live music throughout the day as well as the grand firework show from approximately 10:10 – 10:30 pm. When you stay at Pier B, get the perfect viewing experience, without the traffic on the way home – simply walk back across our boat slip bridge after the grand finale!
