Beautiful Sturgeon Bay is waiting to greet classic boating enthusiasts for the 29th annual Door County Classic and Wooden Boat Festival. If you have a boat and want to join the fun, you can register right up to the festival opening on Saturday morning. It’s better to register earlier, of course, but last-minute registrations are welcome. It looks like the weather will be great!
We’ve got 13 teams set to go for our Sikaflex boatbuilding competition and race and over 40 boats for you to enjoy including model boats. You can take a ride on a classic, pedal a Swan Boat, try your hand at the Damage Control Simulator, watch a Kahlenberg engine fire up, tour a Coast Guard vessel, and much more. Kids, on Saturday, can build their own sailboats or race miniature tugs. There are fresh Whitefish sandwiches, cool beverages, the Maritime on Madison street fair, and all of downtown Sturgeon Bay’s merchants and restaurants to experience. And don’t forget to visit the Museum itself and our 100-year-old tug, the John Purves.
We’ll see you in a week!
