Park Point Art Fair
This year, the Park Point Art Fair is taking place on June 24th and 25th, 2017 in Duluth’s unique Park Point Neighborhood. Admission to this incredible event is free. From there, you’ll gain access to over 120 artists, and plenty of entertainment and food. It’s a great way to get a glimpse into daily living in the ruggedly charming city of Duluth. Live music on Saturday will feature The Boomchucks, a staple Duluth rock n roll band featuring original songs by Jamie Ness and Brad Nelson; and singer-songwriter-violinist Gaelynn Lea, winner of National Public Radio’s 2016 Tiny Desk Contest. On Sunday, the sounds will come fromThe Hankies, Duluth’s Hank Williams Sr. country music tribute band; and singer-guitarist Jim Hall, a local legend of bluegrass, folk and rock sound. Food vendors will be on hand selling everything from BBQ and gyros to kettle corn and ice cream, and artists will be on hand for demos at forming hot glass, fiber arts, woodturning, drawing and other processes.
When you’ve had your fill of the Art Fair, we recommend you explore the remainder of Park Point itself. Located just across Duluth’s iconic Ariel Lift Bridge, the 6-mile-long Minnesota Point peninsula (also called Park Point) is one of the jewels of the state. It is the world’s longest freshwater sandbar, and is consistently recognized for pristine beaches, plentiful parkland, and splendid beauty. Park Point Recreational Area, 4 miles from the bridge, is a popular summer place for beach parties, kite flyers, swimmers, and hikers. After you’ve explored to your hearts content, head back towards the Canal Park area, where you can grab a cold beer and dinner nearby at Canal Park Brewing Company, or enjoy a true Duluth spirit at Vikre Distillery. Or for the finest Italian in town, stroll along the lakewalk to Va Bene Berarducci Caffe for a spectacular meal and view of Lake Superior! When you’re ready to sink into our luxurious accommodations, head to the A.G. Thomson House Bed and Breakfast for a fantastic night of sleep and relaxation.
