Indoor Skateboard Park

Like to skate? The Encounter has the only skateboard park in Duluth. Remodeled in 2008 with new ramps to suit all skill levels, we welcome skaters, rollerbladers, and BMX bikers in our park. Join us for youth church Sunday nights from 4-8 pm. Youth church is an exciting night including free admission to the park, free dinner, and a relevant devotional time.

All Age Music Venues

At the Encounter, we think live music concerts in Duluth should be enjoyed by all ages! Two music venues ensure that all musicians, big or small, have an opportunity to share their talent with the youth of our community. The Red Room features live, local music, & The Main Stage features nationally touring Christian artists https://www.octafx-my.com/vps .
