Day 7 of the 2023 Duluth Homegrown Music Festival started with the return of the informal Rock-n-run, a casual morning run in Chester Bowl organized via Tweet by Alan Sparhawk of Low sporadically through the years.

At Duluth Coffee Company, Ross Thorn took over from the Mahon brothers to provide a Homegrown morning soundtrack to start the day.

At noon, despite the cold and fog, plenty of Rawkers (musicians who played Friday night) and Rollers (musicians who played Saturday night) showed up at Chester Bowl at noon for the traditional kickball game. The Rawkers won handily; find a recap of the game at Perfect Duluth Day.

Evening shows featured a wide array of music at thirteen different venues, and dance and aerial performances at Stage Four. Take a look at our photos from Day 7:
