Parking & Directions
There are several parking options to choose from and most must be purchased in advance. There are two (2) onsite options and two (2) shuttle options for the 2018 Duluth Airshow. Please review the following options to determine the option that will best suit your arrival and departure needs prior to purchasing.
ORANGE LOT -UPGRADED ONSITE – Must purchase in advance
The UPGRADED ONSITE PARKING lot is $35 dollars. The benefit to the upgraded parking is that you bypass all of the traffic. If that isn’t enough you will be glad you did especially after spending a long day at the show. Upon leaving you exit onto a private road which takes you back to the highway bypassing all of the main parking lot congestion. (This lot sells out every year so buy your tickets in advance online, as these are not sold at the show).
DIRECTIONS : (From the Twin Cities) Take I-35 N into Duluth. Once in Duluth, get in the left lane and take a LEFT on exit 255A (21st Ave W exit). Stay on this road for approximately 5 miles and then take a left (just past Miller Hill Mall) on US 53 N (Miller Trunk Highway). Stay on US 53 N for 3 miles and look for the Airshow UPGRADED ONSITE PARKING signs.
