Duluth Dylan Fest!

Bob Dylan Way

In May 2006, the City of Duluth designated a cultural pathway in honor of Duluth’s native son, Bob Dylan, to commemorate his 65th birthday. The 1.8 mile Bob Dylan Way winds through Duluth’s downtown, extending from Michigan Street at 5th Avenue West to 15th Avenue East and London Road. It follows segments of three major arteries: Michigan Street, Superior Street and London Road (Historical Highway 61) linking cultural assets from the Depot to the Historic Armory.
