Welcome to June everyone! As summer really starts to pick up so do the events in Door County. Kicking off June is Free Fishing Weekend this means that the first weekend of June (6th-7th) you do not need a license to fish anywhere in the state. The same weekend is also State Park Open House, all parks are open to the public for free all day. If you’re looking for more organized fun on Saturday the 6th is the 5th annual Side Pork Festival in Sturgeon Bay. Martin Park hosts this all day/free event of live entertainment, arts and crafts, the Hog Wild Run and lots and lots of food. For more information on the event check out their website at www.sideporkfest.com.
On June 20th is one of Ephraim’s most popular events, the Fyr Bal Festival. This is a Scandinavian festival that celebrates the beginning of summer. The event includes a boat regatta, walking tours, crafts, live music, food and traditional entertainment, the event is capped off by bon fires on the beach and fireworks at sunset. All events take place within walking distance from the Pine Grove. If you’re looking for something a little more low key to do in the evenings you can check out the Midsummer’s Music Festival. They are an orchestra that travels throughout Door County and all of their performances are listed on their website as www.midsummersmusic.com, if this is something you’re interested in, we recommend that you buy tickets in advance, this can also be done through their website.
