It’s hard to believe they are just around the corner.  You think summer is great in Door County, experience our fall festivals that celebrate fall and the spooky season which is loads of fun too!

It all starts with Harvest Fest and Street Art Auction on September 16, downtown Sturgeon Bay.  It’s all about a classic car show, arts and crafts, food, a stein-holding contest and live entertainment.  Don’t forget, it’s your last chance to check out the Bass around the Bay, a street-art project at Martin Park before the auction closes. 

On September 23, it’s Baileys Harbor Autumn Fest.  The morning kicks off with a 5K run, followed by a classic auto and motorcycle show.  Plus, live music, food and drinks, and who can’t miss an arts and crafts fair!

On September 29 – October 1, it’s the Fall Lighthouse Festival.  Discover Door County’s 11 lighthouses by land, air and boat.  You will find some lighthouses that aren’t generally available to the public.

On October 7 and 8, it’s Egg Harbor’s Pumpkin Patch Festival.  One of my favorites, and walking distance from our lodge.  Egg Harbor celebrates autumn with fall food favorites, carnival rides, arts and crafts, live music, plus scarecrow and pumpkin displays, magicians and more throughout the village!

On October 13-15, it’s Sister Bay Fall Festival.  This is a big bash for the whole family.  The streets will be filled with live music, food booths and beverages.  There are games in the park, activities for kids, as well as the arts and crafts fair.  Don’t miss Saturday’s highlight, the Fall Fest parade.  Then on Sunday, the streets close for the derby race down the hill and the ping-pong ball drop.

On October 28-30, it’s Jack O’Lantern Days.  It’s a true hometown Halloween festival in Fish Creek.  You will see a costume parade, kid’s carnival games, town-wide trick or treat, plus a scary l/8 mile walk through the trails and bridges of Fish Creek Park at dusk.

To end the festival season, it’s Thrills and Chills on October 28.  A day of Halloween fun throughout downtown Sturgeon Bay.  The fun starts with a costume parade.  Afterwards, enjoy making trick or treat bags, pumpkin carving, a haunted house, and trick or treating throughout downtown Sturgeon Bay.

There is so much fun to look forward to with all of Door County’s  Fall Festivals.  The good news, we still have rooms available.  Don’t miss out on our fall special, if you spend three nights between October 15-28, your last night is at no charge.  We close for the season on October 29.  We reopen May 1, 2024.
