Glensheen Concerts on the Pier

Jun 22, 2022

Glensheen hosts nine summer concerts in 2022.

Glensheen is excited to announce the lineup for Duluth’s premier summer concert series on the water, Concerts on the Pier 2022. They will host nine bands this year in July and August. The lineup kicks off on July 6 with music from country musician Rafe Carlson. The events are free and open to the public from 5 to 8 pm, with music starting at 7 pm.

The audience is invited to sip on craft beers and non-alcohol drinks, connect with neighbors and friends, play lawn games, and purchase Love Creamery ice cream and food from local food trucks. Guests are encouraged enjoy a lakeside campfire and paddle or boat in to view the concert from the water. They are also welcome to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the show from the shore.

Chester and Clara Congdon loved to highlight local makers and artists in our own state, so in their tradition, the vast majority of the artists performing at the concerts are from Minnesota and Duluth.
