OLDE ELLISON BAY DAYS ART SHOW INVITATION
You are invited to apply to the 50th Olde Ellison Bay Days Art Fair sponsored by the Ellison Bay Service Club. Ellison Bay is also celebrating it’s 150th Anniversary!
Located at the Ellison Bay Beach Park, Olde Ellison Bay Days kicks off the festival season in beautiful Door County. Olde Ellison Bay Days activities include the very popular ‘Best-minster’ Dog Show which promotes and supports the Door County Humane Society. Categories such as Best Jumper or Cutest Tail offer lots of entertainment. Each year attendance grows as attendees take advantage of the great food, music, activities and art fair. Because this is our 50th Anniversary, more surprises are in store. We hope you join us in welcoming the Summer Art Fair season in Ellison Bay.
In addition to the Art Fair and all that happens at the Beach Park all weekend, on Saturday there is the 3rd annual ‘Uncork Summer’, featuring Door County eateries, wineries and breweries held at Wickman House and sponsored by Door County North.
