What Will You Discover at the Sister Bay Marina Fest?
Food & Drink
One of the essential parts of any Door County event is delicious local food. At the Marina Fest, you’ll find delicious street food, a pancake breakfast, ice cream vendors, and more. If you want to take a taste of Sister Bay home with you, head to the festival’s farmers market for locally sourced food and seasonal treats.
It wouldn’t be a festival without live music! In years past, the Sister Bay Marina Fest has hosted up-and-coming artists such as “Last Man Standing” and “Conscious Pilot.” We can’t wait to see who will be performing this year.
In addition to amazing concerts, the first night of the festival ends with a stunning display of fireworks over the water. For an even better view, enjoy this spectacular sight aboard one of the bay’s boat cruises.
There’s something that everyone will love at the Marina Fest! Watch a vintage boat show, browse at the book sale or arts and crafts fair, and take part in the kid-friendly activities. The best part is that admission into the event is completely free, so bring the entire family for a weekend of fun!
