The Door County Artistic Side

One of the key aspects of Door County culture is art.  There are many artists that reside and work on the peninsula, taking their inspiration from the beautiful surroundings.  The artistic forms practiced here vary, including sculpture work, pottery, glass creations, music and performing arts.  Of course, one of the classic forms of art is painting, and this weekend is a celebration of this art. 

Plein Air Festival is now in full swing ending tomorrow July 24th.  Over 40 artists are moving their work to the great outdoors and creating an image of Door County through painting.  The festival offers special events for the family and following this weekend the paintings will be on display at The Peninsula School of Art until August 7th. 

Come see the artists at work, or at least take a trip to the art school to see the artist’s representation of the Door Peninsula.   We would be glad to have you stay with us at High Point Inn!

Happy Independence Day!

The 4th of July is just days away and it’s not too late to join us in Door County at High Point Inn.  We have the outdoor pool and grills all ready to go! 

The Door Peninsula is full of activities for July 4th.  Each town has its own traditions and there are even some new ones being added this year.  There are parades, arts and crafts, food, music and more. 

Of course we can’t forget the fireworks!  The peninsula is a great place to experience fireworks; with the surrounding water the view is unbeatable.  Tomorrow night, the 3rd, Egg Harbor will have their fireworks display and on the 4th there will be fireworks in Sturgeon Bay, Fish Creek, Baileys Harbor, Gills Rock and Washington Island

Make this an Independence Day to remember and join us in Door County at High Point Inn!

A Celebration In Ephraim!

The summer season officially starts this coming weekend for all of Door County and Ephraim is kicking it off with a weekend long festival.  Fyr Bal in Ephraim is a long time tradition; it is a celebration of the beginning of summer and there is a lot to do!

Ephraim will be busy with walking tours, music, arts and crafts and food tents on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Friday is a quieter day of the festival with walking tours and ending with a peaceful midsummer’s music festival by Hardy Gallery on Anderson Dock. 

Saturday is full of events complete with a regatta presented by the Ephraim Yacht Club, a raffle, a cakewalk and food all day.  The celebration carries on into the evening with a traditional fish boil and more music.  Then at 8:30 the multiple bonfires lined up along the water are lit creating an impressive image. Finally to end the day fireworks are set off over the harbor at sunset.

Sunday the celebration will continue with more arts and crafts, music, food and a special visit from Bucky the Badger.  The festival then winds down in the evening with a family sing-along at the village hall.

Come visit us in Ephraim at High Point Inn to celebrate the beginning of summer!  The whole village will be full of excitement and fun!
