Ellison Bay Arts Crawl Opens the Summer Season

Ellison Bay is no ordinary place. Like many Door County communities, it is home to the arts. A number of artists are opening their doors for the third annual, spring Ellison Bay Arts Crawl on Saturday, May 16 and Sunday, May 17 from 10 am – 5 pm. Each of the participating locations has a helpful brochure available to guide visitors who are crawling from one place to the next.
