Join the Door County Historical Society to celebrate German Festival! The historical society will host its annual German Festival on Saturday, August 10. Activities will be held from 10am to 3pm at the Heritage Village at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay.
We will explore German history and indulge in German foods- from brats to cake. There will also be live German music, along with demonstrations of blacksmithing, silk dying, and knapping.
At 11am and 2pm Nan and Jerry Krause will present German immigrant stories in the Vignes School. Joan Wilkie will also be in the school at 1pm portraying.
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!
Member admission is free and guest adult admission is $6.50. Food will be available for additional cost. If you are interested in volunteering, call 920-421-2332.
