Member Profile

Ryan and Lindsay Kern, of Kern and Kompany

Kern and Kompany

By Lewi Yonas, UMD Student Intern at Destination Duluth

Kern and Kompany has continued to lead the pack when it comes to event planning and marketing here in the Northland since its very inception. Located at 2110 W 1st St, Kern and Kompany, and the rest of the crew, have found themselves smack-dab in the middle of a blooming neighborhood.

Serving the community for just over 20 years, Kern and Kompany has seen tremendous success with a multitude of events; from homegrown high-school “all-star” matchups to the more illustrious and grandiose Duluth Airshow.

Taking on an important lead role in community relations, Lindsay Kern cannot stress the gratification she receives from playing a role in the neighborhood enough.

“Our main objective is to strive to bring quality family events to the Duluth community. Something our sponsors can be proud of and something the community can be proud of while bringing in a strong economic impact.”

What’s coming up next for the seasoned vets at Kern and Kompany, you ask?

Well, for starters, the KIA of Duluth Drag Race & Car Show kicks off September 8-9th on Garfield Ave. and boasts some of the most wild and ferocious vehicles in the area. And it wouldn’t be summer in Duluth without the Duluth Airshow, making its appearance July 7-8th.

So grab your keys, cameras, and loved ones and strap in for an unforgettable summer that promises to be eventful with Kern and Kompany!

Help Sponsor the UMD Internship In Lincoln Park

Destination Duluth has seven interns from UMD working with them this semester. Sponsors of this program are able to have interns promote their business by writing about it, taking photos, promoting your business on Facebook, and even possibly having a drone shoot video of your location.

This is a great intern program that Destination Duluth is managing, and they are looking for additional sponsors to help cover their costs. It can be a tremendous benefit for your business–these interns are creative, smart and enthusiastic, and have experience in marketing and writing. By being a sponsor you will be supporting a very worthwhile program in Lincoln Park.

Please check out Destination Duluth’s website at for all the great things they do to promote Duluth. Contact Jerry Thoreson of Destination Duluth to find out more about their intern program. He can be reached at
