The fountain will be turned off at 6pm on Saturday, July 23 for the Summer Stage Concert. Normal hours will resume on Sunday. 

The fountain is open seven days a week weather permitting from 9am-9pm Mon-Thurs, 9am-10pm Fri & Sat, and 12pm-9pm on Sun.

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. All group visits must be scheduled by completing the Fountain Reservation Application. Please contact the Festival Center Coordinator at with any questions. 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. Visits are limited to one time per month.

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.

Schedule group visits to the fountain with the Festival Center Coordinator here.
