Gray duck theater




We are located at 619 6th Ave NW, Rochester, MN 55901, less than one block from Civic Center Drive NW. We are a beautiful 12 minute walk from Mayo’s Gonda Building and the rest of downtown Rochester. We are a 90 minute or less drive from the Twin Cities, Winona, Mankato, La Crosse, and Austin.

Parking Tips

For daytime parking we recommend using the ample free street parking in front of the shop on 6th Ave NW. There is a two hour limit from 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, and no limits on evenings and weekends. Parking across the street requires a neighborhood permit. 

We also have a free parking lot behind our building that is accessible from 7th St NW. When you can see the giant mural, you’ve found it! 

Public transit is also an option. The Route 11 bus stops right in front of Gray Duck on weekdays, and the Route 26 bus does the same on the weekends.

Of course, you can also buy tickets anytime at the theater. We recommend buying tickets in advance for any show you’re especially excited about, since sell-outs do happen. We try to post alerts on social media when something is close to selling out.
