About the DECC

Welcome to the DECC

The Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC)  is a collection of ten venues hosting excellent conventions, sports, arts, and entertainment in nearly one-million square feet of space. Located on Lake Superior, the DECC offers spectacular views of the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge and bay.

Steps away from charming Canal Park and Downtown Duluth, the DECC is walkable to shops, restaurants, and hotels. The Duluth Lakewalk is just outside our doors, as is Bayfront Festival Park. The DECC is also part of the Duluth Skywalk system.

Home to Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra, the Minnesota Ballet, UMD Men’s and Women’s Bulldog Hockey, the Olympic gold-winning Duluth Curling Club, and the William A. Irvin ore boat museum / Duluth Haunted Ship, the DECC is the heart of regional entertainment.

Our commitment to sustainability means that all the events we host bring both economic and environmental benefits to our city.
