Let the music play on the beautiful shores of Glensheen Mansion. Starting Wednesday July 7 from 5-8p you and your friends and family will be able to enjoy a free Concert on the Pier. These concerts will be every Wednesday night through August. In years  past people come by kayak, bike, car or walk to attend the concerts. Local musicians play on the end of Glensheen’s 100-ft pier that juts out into Lake Superior with people watching and listening from the water and the shore.

This event draws huge crowds and parking can be an issue, staff at Glensheen ask that if parking on London road be courteous to their neighbors since the parking lot fills up pretty quickly.  Onsite kayak launching available ONLY through Day Tripper of Duluth⁠, otherwise you need to launch your kayak at a different location and paddle to Glensheen. Outside food is allowed but not large coolers or glass or outside alcohol. Service Animals are welcome.
