Fish Boil and Open House at Gills Rock Maritime Museum

The Door County Maritime Museum, in conjunction with J&M Fisheries, will host a fish boil with an open house in Gills Rock on Sept. 16.

The museum open house takes place from 10 am – 5 pm and allows visitors to view the new exhibit, “Dan Seavey, a Great Lakes Pirate.”

The fish boil begins with a social hour at 12:30 pm and dinner will follow at 1:30 pm. To lend an authentic atmosphere, the fish boil will take place in the net shed of J&M Fisheries on Weborg’s Dock. The traditional boil includes fresh whitefish, potatoes, onions, rye bread, coleslaw donated by Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant, and cherry slices donated by Seaquist Orchards.

Mary Hirthe will be at the event to sign the book, Schooner Days in Door County, which she co-authored with her husband Walter.

The event is $20 for DCMM members and $25 for non-members. Youth (5 – 18 year olds) tickets are $10 and $15.

To reserve a spot, call 920.743.5958. Weborg’s Dock is located on Highway 42 in Gills Rock, a short distance before the turn towards Northport.
