Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (June 3, 2020) – The Door County Historical Society (DCHS) is saddened to announce its Root Beer Festival, scheduled for July 11th, will be canceled this year. The Board of Directors made this decision out of concern for the health of DCHS staff, society members, Heritage Village volunteers, and community members that have made this event possible for the last 7 years.
Jay Zahn, President of the DCHS Board of Directors, said “This decision was not might lightly. We know hundreds of people have enjoyed visiting Heritage Village and experiencing all things root beer.”
Root Beer Festival is made possible by a variety of local sponsors and we wanted to be respectful of the current economic uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We hope our September festival will be able to include all for the aspects of Root Beer Festival that have been so thoroughly enjoyed in the past,” Bailey Koepsel, Executive Director, said.
Thank you for supporting the Door County Historical Society and its decision to cancel the 2020 Root Beer Festival. We hope to celebrate Door County’s heritage together as soon as it is safe to do so.
