The Door County Classic & Wooden Boat Festival is making its annual call for entries for the various events associated with the festival, Aug. 12 & 13. The call includes boats to be exhibited, teams to compete in the Sikaflex Challenge boat building competition and artwork for the new Art Mart Sale.
The Door County Classic & Wooden Boat Festival annually features a remarkable assortment of vessels, which will compete for People’s Choice honors. Boats will be displayed either trailered, in-water or on the grass. Registration materials and information are available at the museum, 120 N. Madison Ave., Sturgeon Bay, online at dcmm.org/events or contact boat registration coordinator Bill Freyman at [email protected]
The Sikaflex Challenge boat building competition returns with construction on Friday evening and the race on Saturday. The field is limited to 12 two-person teams. Again, participants are restricted in the amount of wood and tools being provided with an ample supply of Sikaflex marine sealant available for use during construction. Entry is $20 per team.
Art Mart is new for 2016, replacing the Paint the Bay plein air event. Area artists will provide their works for sale with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Door County Maritime Museum. Artists interested in presenting their art for sale should contact Art Mart coordinator Jerry Richter at 920.746.0516 or the Maritime Museum 920.743.5958.
