A marching dead band?! Catch the Parade on Saturday!

Throughout the weekend you’ll find Food & Drink vendors at various locations throughout the village (10-5 Fri./Sat. and 10-4 Sun.), and lots more to tempt the taste buds and please the palate at local restaurants, pubs, and coffee shops!

There are two special meals this weekend that you won’t want to miss: Friday from 5-8 pm, experience a Door County tradition – a real Fish Boil at the Fire Station on Mill Road, sponsored by Sister Bay Lions Club. On Saturday, from 7-11am, enjoy a fabulous Pancake Breakfast at the Village Hall Saturday, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Northern Door.

SISTER BAY, WI (June 2014) – Cupcake Heaven in Sister Bay invites you to stop in and enjoy live music each week this summer with local singer/songwriter Marybeth Mattson, performing in the shop from 2-4pm every Sunday in August.

Mattson began her performance and songwriting career after the 2008 season of America’s Got Talent, in which Door County piano man Eli Mattson took second place. As any good big brother, Eli encouraged Marybeth to follow her dreams and, along with fellow performer Seth Raddatz, offered constructive criticism which ultimately helped shape her musical and lyrical choices, and gave her the courage and drive to record her first album Relative Hunger, released in 2012.

The Tambourine Lounge, located next door to the Holiday Music Motel on 1st Ave. Sturgeon Bay, WI

Steel Bridge Songfest in Sturgeon Bay runs Thursday, June 12 through Sunday, June 15, 2014. This is an astonishing festival in that all the musicians who perform volunteer their time, and those who participate in the “Construction Zone” (there are some 70 this year) spend the entire week prior to the festival spinning a whiskey bottle to form groups in which they co-write dozens upon dozens of original songs which they record at the Holiday Music Motel, then perform for audiences at a variety of indoor and outdoor venues.
