As Sister Bay gears up for another Fall Festival, we look forward to the weekend’s activities. The Schedule of Events is jam packed for the “Granddaddy” of all Door County Festivals. Be sure to check out all the live music, fish boil, Classic Auto Show, mechanical bull, Annual Parade and much more. Fall Fest is just days away so make your reservations now!

One of the highlights of Fall Fest is the music. The streets of Sister Bay become a stage as all types of music can be heard. The live music is listed in the schedule below so be sure to check it out.

If you are here with children, they will have just as much fun as the adults. Fall Festival is fun for the whole family. The Parade on Saturday is amusing for even the youngest children. A dog show will be held at the Downtown Park. There are games and blow up toys at the new waterfront park and the adjacent lot across the street. Let’s not forget the famous ping pong ball drop that thrills every child in Sister Bay. Watch as your kids scramble to get the little white balls falling all around them. Your fall fest experience is not complete without catching one of these! If you have never attended one of these events, the idea is to grab as many balls as you can. Some have things written on them, some are blank. If you’re lucky enough to get one with a local business name on it, bring it there to redeem them for various prizes.

Fall Fest would not be what it is without the food! Vendors will be set up along Hwy 42/57 offering a sampling of all that Sister Bay has to offer. Be sure to check out the brand new Sloppy Joe Eating Contest on the new porch at Sister Bay Bowl at 11am on Sunday.

If you are looking for arts & crafts, this is the last weekend of the year you can find them. A side street has been turned into a collection of tents to please every shopper’s dreams. Artisans from all over the state bring their goods for one last chance to give you that perfect gift or decoration.
