Giving Thanks

Jan 30, 2017 | True North News

While we may be entering Door County’s off-season, there are still plenty of opportunities, activities and events throughout the peninsula that will make you thankful to live in such a wonderful community.

Hand-crafted gifts
Find unique, artisan-crafted gifts for those on your list this season at one of Door County’s many holiday open houses or art fairs. Shop several local artists to find that perfect piece to make someone’s season special at the Friends of Gibraltar School Holiday Art Fair, or visit open houses at Gills Rock Stoneware, Door 44 Winery, or Cappaert Contemporary Gallery. Find the perfect gift of Door County art at The Hardy Gallery’s Holiday Online Auction.

Holly Days
Get in the Christmas spirit with an old-fashioned winter weekend in Egg Harbor. Start with Breakfast with Santa, partake in a children’s elf hunt, and enjoy a horse-drawn wagon ride. The weekend is filled with tons of family-friendly activities, as well as wine tasting for adults. Visit the event page for more details.

Live music
While summer may be considered high season for live music around the county, there are still plenty of opportunities to catch a show at Door Community Auditorium (DCA), or listen to a local band with friends. In the mood for holiday music? Don’t miss the Rockapellas, singing several seasonal favorites at the DCA, and Play It Forward for the Holidays to hear songs from Door County’s favorite performers.
