Green Bay from Peninsula State Park

Ahoy! It may be hard to believe, but it’s time to start thinking about classic boating again!

The Bay may be frozen, the Lake may be cold, but now is the time to plan to attend the 30th annual Door County Classic and Wooden Boat Festival. August 14 and 15, 2021. You might plan to come early for the pre-event cruise on Friday, August 13th. The ten-mile afternoon cruise for registered boaters is a great opportunity to take those classics out on the water, and it’s followed by our traditional pizza and cocktail party at the museum. The Festival itself runs Saturday and Sunday and there are lots of great new attractions for you to enjoy as we wrap up Maritime Week in Sturgeon Bay. There’s a parade honoring the men and women of the US Coast Guard through the city on Saturday morning, the amazing new 10 story Jim Kress Maritime Lighthouse Tower at the Museum, boat rides, a classic boat parade on Saturday evening, a waterside market, live music, a Bloody Mary Social, the Sikaflex Boatbuilding Challenge, classic boats to view, and much, much more.

So visit the Festival website at to see all the exciting activities awaiting you in Sturgeon Bay this summer. You can register conveniently on-line through the website, or if you prefer, you can download a registration form and register in classic style via US Mail.

The weekend is full of fun for the whole family. See you this August!
