Blues Fest is an annual music festival that is held at Bayfront Park approximately 5-10 minutes from the Park Point Marina Inn. It is a 3-day event held in August that showcases some of the top blues artists in the world. Artists also perform midweek at local area venues. Some will perform Friday and Saturday night at those same venues after shows at the festival. This event attracts 15,000 people to Duluth, so we suggest to make your hotel reservations early due to our great location during this event. Our complimentary Canal Park shuttle will drop you off behind the DECC near the Minnesota Slip Bridge, and will pick you up as late as 10:00pm. The Port Town Trolley is also available to drop you off within 1 block of the event, but does stop service at 7:00pm. We suggest to cross over the bridge from ordinary and stay with the Park Point Marina Inn while you attend the Blues Fest.
