September 13 marks the Second Annual Saturday Stroll promotional event in historic Ephraim, Wisconsin. The day is a village-wide celebration of music, special sales, food and other promotions from various businesses throughout one of Door County’s most scenic villages.
Shops, galleries, restaurants and lodgings open during normal Saturday business hours will offer a variety of unique promotions for the day, including raffles to win waterfront accommodations or free art from a local artist. Other sales include 10 – 50 percent off select merchandise, free seasonal goodies and more! Visitors may stop in to the Ephraim Visitor Information Center for a complete list of the day’s promotions.
Come for the savings and stay for the music. There will be four musical acts performing throughout the day, free of charge. Concertgoers may bring a lawn chair to make themselves comfortable at either of the two concert locations. Beginning at 11 am, Harborside Park, offering spectacular views of Eagle Harbor, welcomes back the acoustic variety of The Nicks. A duo whose infectious harmonies made for one of the best-attended Monday night concerts of Ephraim’s summer music series in the park.
The front lawn of Fine Line Designs Gallery & Sculpture Garden, in the northern end of Ephraim, hosts the 50-piece Hartland Community Band from 1 – 3 pm. This all-volunteer concert band from southeast Wisconsin is excited to be making their second trip to Door County. With a concert repertoire ranging from Broadway classics to patriotic fare, they aim to emphasize the importance of community with every performance.
The traditional Scandinavian music of Christine and Nelson Whyatt will fill Harborside Park from 3 – 5 pm. Hailing originally from Minnesota (and possibly looking to make Door County their full-time home) this couple has been married for 42 years, and has been making music together for 30 years. They are a delight to watch in their authentic Scandinavian costume.
The day’s music comes to an end with a performance from the father and son group of Jay and Richard Whitney from 4 – 5:30 pm in the tent at Fine Line Designs Gallery & Sculpture Garden. Every toe will be tapping to the blues and originals of these local favorites.
