Duluth-Superior Pride Offers Awesome Labor Day Weekend Cornucopia


This year, Duluth-Superior Pride marks its 28th anniversary with a five-day cornucopia of events in the Twin Ports of Duluth, Minnesota, and Superior, Wisconsin, over Labor Day Weekend, August 27-31. The theme is “Out Is In.”

Featured entertainment at the free Pride Festival on August 30 in Duluth includes headliners Ariana & The Rose (3:30 PM), Branden James (4:00 PM), Svet (4:45 PM), Cheesa (5:30 PM), and Steve Grand (6:15 PM).

Following the festival, both Superior GLBT bars, The Flame Nightclub and The Main Club, just a few blocks apart, cohost Pride Block Parties at their respective venues.

The Pride Parade on August 31 in Superior returns to its traditional route on Tower Avenue after last year’s relocation because of construction. NOTE: The Duluth-Superior Pride Guide incorrectly has the Pride Parade route as Broadway and Banks, Superior.

Looking for a reasonable and fun place to stay on Friday and Saturday, August 29 and 30? Try the venerable Duluth Sauna in Downtown Duluth, with special overnight Pride hours from Noon each day to 9 AM the next day.
