Heritage Village has been transformed to a holiday wonderland!
Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (December 12, 2023) – Don’t miss the opportunity to see Heritage Village like never before – at nighttime beautifully lit and decorated for the holidays!
We invited local nonprofit organizations to each decorate a building for Christmas. In a friendly yet spirited competition, each are vying for the coveted title of Best Decorated Building. The participating organizations include Door County YMCA, Sunshine Resources, Operation Not Alone, Sturgeon Bay Historical Foundation, and Crossroads at Big Creek. Each were challenged to decorate their building in a historically-accurate way, encouraging creativity and ingenuity.
The result is a stunningly beautiful event, where visitors step back in time to experience A Glimpse of Christmas Past. It’s an opportunity to celebrate the rich history of the region while ushering in the holiday spirit with creative and enchanting decorations.
Join us at Heritage Village each Friday and Saturday in December from 4 pm – 7 pm. Immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere, explore the beautifully adorned historic buildings, and cast your vote for the Best Decorated Building. Votes will be collected via donations – the building collects the most is deemed the winner. The donations received will be shared amongst all the nonprofits.
Don’t miss this opportunity to step back in time, experience the magic of the season, and be a part of A Glimpse of Christmas Past at Heritage Village. Join us for a journey through history and witness the transformation of this historic landmark into a festive spectacle.
