2023 is shaping up to be an epic year! Jon Pardi will be bringing the party to Duluth with a headlining show at Bayfront Festival Park this summer. It's being billed a 'Pardi In The Park' and for good reason.

There have been some amazing country artists that have taken the stage at Bayfront Festival Park over the years! Last year, we had Jake Owen headlining a show there - barefoot, of course - and it was the perfect show for the summertime!

The year prior, country legend Aaron Tippin and popular duo Thompson Square headlined a show over the summer. After the show, Thompson Square took to Instagram to thank locals in the area for making them feel welcome.

Last but not least, Chris Janson also took the stage at Bayfront Festival Park and the crowd was pretty wild! Openers included Chase Bryant and Joe Nichols, along with Duluth's own Whiskey Trail. It was a concert that set the bar pretty high.
