Steel Bridge Song Fest is the awesome result of a week-long gathering of musicians from near and far who spend a week writing and recording original songs in “band” groups fated by bottle spin – whiskey bottle to be exact… The resulting weekend of live performances in a variety of venues on 3rd Avenue in downtown Sturgeon Bay, is an amazing way to experience and discover brand spanking new music. Fall in love with a new band, become a groupie, follow them around all weekend – or settle in at your favorite venue and enjoy a variety of music throughout the evening! A weekend pass ($25) gets you into all of the venues for all 4 nights to see over 100 different musical acts!
