Tall Ships Festival Parking Restrictions Two Harbors

in Effect at Midnight, Thursday Aug 4

TWO HARBORS, MINNESOTA ~~~~~   August 3, 2022 (LSNews)  No parking signs are being placed today in preparation for the events on streets identified as no parking routes during the Festival of Sail Lake; however, restrictions do not go into effect until 12 am, Thursday, Aug 4. Residents can still park in these spaces today until 11:59 pm.

“We understand that these temporary changes in parking and an increase in traffic for community events on the North Shore may be an inconvenience for many over the next four days,” said Chief Rick Hogenson, Two Harbors Police Department. “On behalf of all of the federal, state and local partners as well as the event promoters, we thank you for your patience and cooperation.”


As always…if you have an emergency, DIAL 911! If you are a victim of a crime, want to report a crime, or need help, your call will be handled by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch Center.

For non-emergencies or if you have a festival-related complaint (parking, trespass, etc.), call
(218) 834-5566 or (218) 834-8385, these calls will be routed to the Dispatch Center handling all festival-related calls for service.

Please do NOT call 911 for questions related to parking or other festival-related questions or complaints, these lines need to remain open for efficient emergency response and public safety concerns.

All festival-related questions or inquiries should be directed to Tall Ships staff, promotors, or visit the official website at

Our County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will be active for the duration of the events and staffed by a unified command team who will be closely monitoring all activity. Tall Ships Two Harbors 2022 has been designated by the United States Coast Guard as a Marine Event of National Significance (MENS). The MENS designation requires several security measures to be implemented to protect the attending public, event workers/volunteers, and visiting crews and ships. The public safety planning for this event includes numerous federal, state, and local law enforcement and emergency response agencies who have been working collectively over the last many months.


Lawful parking on the streets and avenues throughout the City of Two Harbors will remain during the Festival of Sail Tall Ships Two Harbors 2022, Aug 4-7.

A map is included to show which streets and avenues will NOT have parking allowed, those that will allow parking on one side only, and others will NOT be impacted. Those streets and avenues in RED, will not have parking allowed on them during the festival.

Festival attendees are being encouraged to utilize parking lots, currently all outside of the city limits of Two Harbors, for event parking. The festival website also states: “please do not plan to use on-street parking for the event”.

Temporary handicapped parking lots have been established near the Two Harbors Community Center for the festival dates.

Residents are reminded and encouraged to utilize off-street parking, when available.


Residents should anticipate increased traffic in and around the community and should plan for potential delays when commuting. Alternative routes should be considered.

We ask that people slow down and pay attention to signage. Extra signage will be utilized to direct festival attendees to parking areas, currently all planned for outside the city limits of Two Harbors.

Road closures will exist on our streets and avenues, in limited locations, with most of the closures being along the Highway 61/7th Avenue corridor. This has been done in conjunction with the MNDOT officials to ensure safe traffic flow along the corridor. No one-way traffic lanes are being planned.


A designated bus route has been established from the parking areas to the festival drop off site. The bus route utilizes Highway 2 and various streets and avenues in the City of Two Harbors. A primary bus drop-off location has been identified near the Community Center and will provide festival attendees a centralized location to access the festival and our community.
