“Bayfront Bluesfest: over the top pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Compared to most music festivals, the prices of the food are super high (nine bucks for onion rings, 10 for a tiny bowl of jambalaya or crawfish etoufee), the beer is the warmest I`ve ever seen in any environment (disgraceful), only one canned variety (Sharp?), the rest was draft and there are way too many donkey`s smoking cigars and cigarettes.
Robert Cray laid an egg, but every other Friday performer was great. I wanted to buy a tshirt, and the one I wanted sold out 3 hours into the festival. They said they weren't getting any more. Great business: make enough tshirts for 3 hours then force people to pick over the ones no one else wanted.
I can`t see ever coming back. Go to the Thunder Bay Blues Festival if you want to see how it`s supposed to be done. Sioux Falls Jazz/Blues fest was better too this year. Same price for beer but you get tall boys cans that you can walk around the festival site with. They don't trust you with a can in Duluth. What a joke!

“Cute park at one end of the lakewalk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I stumbled upon Bayfront Festival park when walking along the lakewalk, the park is at the end of the walk. It's a small but nice park with lots of grass and trees. There was a large Asian temple looking building where it looks like they have programs inside.
