Join the Door County Historical Society to celebrate everything root beer! The historical society will host its annual Root Beer Festival on Saturday, July 6. Activities will be held from 10am–3pm at the Heritage Village at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay.
We will explore the history of root beer, play bottle cap games, listen to live music, indulge in root beer floats and cookies, enjoy root beer pulled pork, and sample six different varieties of root beer.
The Madden Tool Museum will be open so you may learn about antique tools. Or, bring one of your own to try and stump the experts!
The Village Chapel will host a vintage hat display and you can watch the blacksmiths create their wares. On the grounds we will play bottle cap games and potato sack races.
Member admission is free and guest adult admission is $6.50. Tickets to purchase root beer floats and flights are $4 each. Food will be available for additional cost. If you are interested in volunteering, call 920-421-2332.
The Heritage Village is located at 2041 Michigan Street, Sturgeon Bay. The Heritage Village will be opened for self-guided tours during the day’s festivities beginning at 10:00 am; the adult admission fee is $6.50 and a donation for youth admission is appreciated.
