The weather seems to be improving a bit. I’m not going to lie, our first outdoor show in Racine was brutal. The wind was unrelenting, and a few of the tents blew down and were damaged. Being right next to Lake Michigan didn’t help, but we still managed to have a great day and were happy to help the Racine Montessori School with their fundraising efforts.
But please, Mother Nature, can you please let us have a stretch of warm and sunny weather? Pretty please?!? Hopefully, the next two weekends in Door County will be FABULOUS! Great weather is predicted for this coming Saturday. I’m not quite ready to jinx ourselves by looking at the weather for Memorial Day!
Here’s our schedule for the rest of May:
This Saturday, May 21st, its the inaugural “Blessing of the Fleet” in Baileys Harbor, WI. This used to be called “Spring Fling” and was held in conjunction with the annual Scottie Fest. But they’ve changed it up a bit this year and added more fun activities. There will still be the adorable Scottie parade at 11:30, along with a host of other seminars and activities throughout Baileys Harbor. The Arts & Crafts fair will be held on the Town Hall lawn from 9am to 4pm. For information on other events, visit www.baileysharbor.com.
Memorial Day weekend finds us in TWO locations in Door County – Jacksonport for their annual Maifest celebration, and Sturgeon Bay, for their Fine Art Fair.
Maifest is held at Lakeside Park in Jacksonport on Saturday, May 28th and Sunday, May 29th. 9am, to 5pm both days.
The Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center will host its annual Fine Art Fair May 28 and 29, 2016 at Sunset Park situated on the picturesque waterfront. Now in its 18th year, the Fine Art Fair draws over 100 artists, crafters, and exhibitors who are proud to display and sell original works of art including sculpture, painting, jewelry, ceramics, fiber, and photography.
Attendees are always pleased to find live entertainment woven throughout the fair including a strolling violist, Gaelic harpist, and clowns.
At the heart of the fair, a beautiful Sculpture Garden can be found showcasing the work of three-dimensional artists who have booths at the fair.
A variety of food and beverages will be available all weekend from vendors located within the park. Don’t miss the popular Fine Art Fair Raffle featuring a large selection of items donated by art fair participants. All proceeds from the Raffle go to support the Fine Art Fair hosted by the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center, a non-profit organization.
Make plans today to enjoy amazing art, fabulous food, marvelous music, and more at the 18th annual Sturgeon Bay Fine Art Fair! There is no cost for admission. Enjoy all the fair has to offer Saturday, May 28th from 10am to 5pm, and Sunday, May 29th from 10am to 4pm at Sunset Park (747 North Third Avenue) in Sturgeon Bay.

We hope you’ll take a drive to enjoy any of these great venues in Door County! It’s our little slice of heaven.
And a tip – when is the last time you oiled your cutting board, utensils, knife handles, etc.? They can’t get too much oil, so keep them moisturized so they can be passed on to future generations!
See you down the road!
