Fall Fest 2017 dates – Friday through Sunday, October 13-16.

The “Granddaddy” of all Door County festivals, 2016 marked the 71st annual Fall Fest in Sister Bay. What began as a celebration and reward for the Door County tourist workers after a busy summer season has evolved into one of the largest weekend celebrations on the peninsula!  A parade, arts & crafts fair, food booths, live entertainment, and children’s activities make this a “must-do” weekend.

New for 2016 was the first annual Fall Festival 50/50 raffle.  Tickets were available throughout the festival grounds Friday, Saturday & Sunday ~ $5 each or 5 for $20.  Tickets were available prior to the festival from October 1 through Thursday October 13 at Husby’s, Bhirdo’s Shell and the Old Schoolhouse Information Center.  You did not have to be present to win.

Sister Bay Classic Car Show (Friday, Saturday & Sunday on W. Mill Road): Display your car, truck, hotrod, muscle car, or classic car and help the Lions Club with their fundraiser.  CLICK HERE TO REGISTER & to view photos of past Car Shows. Register before October 7 and SAVE $5!
