The “Granddaddy” of all Door County festivals, 2014 will mark the 69th 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, but the real fun lies in one of the Fest’s oldest traditions – the famed Ping-Pong Ball Shoot.  An astonishing 10,000 Ping-Pong balls are released on Sunday afternoon, with a one in ten chance of winning a prize from a participating Sister Bay business!

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 9 and SAVE $5!
