Downtown Duluth & Fountain

Even with all the construction happening in downtown, there is still plenty of convenient parking for visitors. 

Downtown Duluth is a community center and gathering place that offers shopping fun, food, entertainment and relaxation. Downtown is home to a variety of specialty merchants that cater to every desire. All Downtown businesses are locally owned and consistently provide quality products. For a unique experience, visit Downtown Duluth.

In addition to the unique shopping and eating experience, Downtown Duluth is home to a spectacular outdoor amphitheater, Town Green with a fountain, Taylor Park and City Hall. Each year the Town Green hosts free festivals, concerts, movies and other entertainment provided by the City. This year’s schedule of events can be found here.

The fountain is open seven days a week:

Please note, fountain operation is dependent on weather. There may also be small windows of downtime to allow for the proper cleaning and maintenance of the fountain throughout the day.

There are times the fountain is down for maintenance and repairs. A notice will be placed on this page as soon as possible if the fountain is not operational. At this time, we are not currently scheduling group visits. When group visits are allowed, all group visits must be scheduled with the Festival Center Coordinator at There is an application to complete and a $20 fee for water and bathroom usage. We cannot accommodate or schedule visits for groups of 50 or more people.

The City of Duluth strives to maintain a working relationship with the Downtown merchants. In addition, the office provides assistance to new, potential, and existing business and property owners. Our Economic Development staff works with the Development Authority to promote the Downtown, improve the appearance of Downtown and increase the general attraction of the area.
