A New Food & Beverage Experience Returns

Door County North, the business association for far northern Door County, has announced the return of the Door Peninsula’s countywide food and wine festival. Scheduled for June 27, Uncork Summer™ will again be held the same weekend as Olde Ellison Bay Days. Uncork Summer will be located outdoors on the grounds of Wickman House, a highly-regarded restaurant on Mink River Road in Ellison Bay, and will feature 20 food vendor booths, plus local wines, craft beers and unique cocktails. Well-known local acoustic musicians Katie Dahl and Small Forest will perform live throughout the day.

Door County North’s Community Coordinator, Darcie Pilz, said Uncork Summer is coming back due to high demand. “Uncork Summer is focused on creating an atmosphere for the enjoyment of new food and beverage experiences, with small plate dishes from restaurants throughout Door County, locally-produced foods from area markets, and wine and beer tastings,” said Pilz.

Expansive free parking for Uncork Summer will be located at the Liberty Grove Historical Society property at the top of the Ellison Bay hill. Free shuttles will ferry visitors from the parking areas and make stops at both Olde Ellison Bay Days’ shoreline site and Uncork Summer.

There is no admission fee to attend Uncork Summer, and tickets will be on sale for food, wine, beer and cocktails. Tickets are $5 each, the price for both individual small plate dishes and drinks. The festival runs from 10 am to 5 pm. For more information, call 920.854.4450 or visit
