Fish Creek’s Wacky Winter Fest

Event schedule for Feb. 1-3

Fish Creek Winter Festival will celebrate its 32nd year in 2019. As the town’s longest-standing tradition and Door County’s most famous winter event, it features live music, quirky games, delicious food, the Fruit Loop Fun Run, a fireworks display and two featured events: an entertaining stumpf fiddle contest and the Smokin’ Hot Chili Cook-off. The stumpf fiddle contest is an activity like no other for musicians and outgoing sorts: you’ll have the opportunity to show off your musical talents or entertain the crowd with your dance/fiddle combos. Most events take place under a heated tent overlooking the frozen waters of Green Bay.

Any activities that take place on the ice depend on the weather.
