Get a taste and a tune all over Door County this weekend: June 12-15, 2014 is Steel Bridge Songfest in Sturgeon Bay, and this Saturday, June 14th is Sip & Savor with Paddlefest in Sister Bay, as well as Door County Beer Fest and the Ride For Nature in Baileys Harbor! Bring Dad to sample local beers, wines, and hard ciders, and treat your taste buds to dishes from a variety of local food vendors while you treat your ear buds to lots of live music!
Skip the paisley tie this year and give Dad a six pack or two of a new brew, or a few bottles of his favorite wine, and don’t forget that most of the musicians performing throughout the county this weekend sell CDs of their original music – which make great Father’s Day gifts too! For more information on these events and more live music on the Door Peninsula this weekend check out Door County Chefs’ Blog: The Taste & Tunes of Door County.
