Duluth Pack is celebrating 100 years of manufacturing at 1610 W. Superior Street in Duluth, Minn. And we would like all our friends and families to help us celebrate.

For those near the Duluth factory location we will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house on Friday, July 15th. The festivities begin at 11:00 am on the sidewalk in front of the factory with the mayor of Duluth proclaiming it “Duluth Pack Day.” Please come and join us, and help us kick off our next 100 years on Superior Street.

For all our fans spread across the seven continents we want you to help us celebrate, too.

We are looking for a favorite photo of you and your clan decked out in the finest of Duluth Pack gear. Post a shot of you in front of the Taj Mahal wearing a Duluth Pack t-shirt. Or send us a photo of your family climbing Mount Kilimanjaro wearing matching cross paddle sweatshirts. From Kathmandu to Timbuktu it is up to you to pick your favorite and then post them to our Facebook fan page or send them into the blog. Emailed photos will also be accepted at: [email protected]

We will throw all the photos into a Duluth Pack baseball hat and draw out one lucky winner. That winner will receive a $100 DuluthPack Gift Card which can be used at our website or at our flagship store in Canal Park.

Seem too easy for you hardcore Duluth Pack fanatics? You’re right it is. In an effort to find the biggest Duluth Pack fan out there we are also going to have a “Super Fan Photo Contest.” Face painters, daredevils, and questionable characters of all kinds have always been our favorites here in Duluth. And, while we don’t encourage anything illegal a photo from the edge just might prove how fanatical you are about our gear.

Post your “Super Fan” photo to our Facebook fan page, to our blog or email to [email protected] and our blue-ribbon panel of judges will select three favorites. Those three will then be posted for the world to see, and the Duluth Pack faithful to judge. When the masses have spoken the last one standing will be judged “Duluth Pack’s Super Fan,” and be given a $100 Duluth Pack gift card to further spread the word.

So get those entries posted quickly, our judges are fading fast.
