Immediately after the Parade, join us at the Festival Center Amphitheater for the Opening Ceremony. The Parade Grand Marshal and Honorary Grand Marshal, and other local dignitaries, will be honored.
Make plans to join us for “Worship on the Town Green” on Sunday morning with a community worship service beginning at 10 a.m. at the Duluth Town Green. This service will be led by staff, musicians and members of Duluth First United Methodist Church.
The Duluth Fall Festival provides continuous entertainment during the two days of the Festival at two venues. During the weekend more than 20 acts will perform a variety of music and dance. The Festival Center Stage hosts bands and dance acts, while the Parsons Alley stage hosts smaller bands and acoustic music in an intimate setting. Throughout the Festival, you may run into street performers, such as puppeteers or our Festival scarecrow mascot.
The Duluth Fall Festival Carnival returns this year to host a full-fledged carnival, with a variety of rides and games. Be sure to take a ride on the Ferris wheel, where you can get a bird’s eye view of the continually changing Duluth skyline.
More than 250+ arts and crafts vendors participate in the Duluth Fall Festival. Vendors offer everything from paintings and photographs, wood crafts, pottery and glassware, furniture, floral arrangements and decorative accessories, baskets, adult and children’s clothing, doll clothes and toys, jewelry, candles, soap and more. All items must be handmade or hand-decorated; no commercial products are allowed.
Several of the same Arts & Crafts vendors return to the Festival year after year; When possible, returning vendors are located in the same general area. Most vendors are local or from the southeast. However, with our growing reputation as one of the best festivals in the southeast, we are fortunate enough attract vendors from as far away as Texas and Ohio.
The Duluth Fall Festival has more than 50 booths offering a variety of food and refreshments for breakfast, lunch and dinner. From coffee, lemonade, cream soda, and slushes to breakfast biscuits, kettle corn, hamburgers, hotdogs, gyros, and alligator, there is something to please every palate. And it wouldn’t be complete without sweets, such as snow cones, funnel cakes and candy apples.
The Food Vendor committee works hard to ensure that there is a variety of fare to choose from, with as little duplication as possible.
Come see local schools—elementary through high school with different activities, fire trucks, antique cars, local dignitaries, boy scouts, girl scouts, dance classes, sponsors, and clowns! The parade begins Saturday at 10:00 am. Streets close by 9:45 am so come early.
Welcome to Man’s Corner where, you will find the wonderful folks and products geared for men along with LIVE COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAMES in the Football Tent.
Man’s Corner is located between the Festival Stage and Duluth City Hall
Younger kids can find all sorts of amusements to keep busy in Kid’s Korner. Activities include inflatables, slides, and “bounce” houses. Booths nearby will be selling popcorn, funnel cakes, drinks and standard festival fare. Ticket prices vary and are available at each activity.
