Duluth has temporarily installed three dine-in tents in the downtown area to allow the public to visit local restaurants while maintaining social distancing. Two of the tents are in the Town Green and one in Parsons Alley.

Each tent contains picnic and high-top tables available on a first-come, first-serve basis. No organized events or parties may take place.

Guests are encouraged to support Duluth restaurants by bringing their take-out to these tents to enjoy, while being protected from the elements. Tables will be spaced appropriately and should be sanitized before and after use.

Public restrooms available next to the Festival Center will also be available for public use. The city has put best practices in place for sanitation and maintenance of each restroom.
