Snow Kickball Debuts at Fish Creek Winter Festival

Fish Creek’s Winter Festival, Jan. 31 – Feb. 2, is a family-friendly community event, for both locals and visitors. A large heated tent, located in Clark Park, will house games, music, raffles and food.

Fish Creek Winter Festival-goers try their luck at minnow racing.

“Saturday is the main day of the event and we have a lot in store for everyone,” said Fish Creek Community Association Board President Bob Spielman. “Everyone’s favorite games are back by popular demand. We have some great stage events that only added to the quirky fun – the ‘Stumpf Fiddle Jam, Snowshoe Dance and new to the stage this year is an Ugly Sweater contest!”

New to Winter Festival this year is a Snow Kickball Tournament out on the harbor; this will take the place of human foosball. Make sure you get your team signed up, at the visitor center, early as the brackets are filling up fast.

Saturday’s festivities at the park wrap up with a fireworks display over the frozen bay at 5:30 pm.

Sunday costume wearers will hit the streets of Fish Creek for the “Fruit Loop” fun run/walk, a non-grueling 1/53rd of a marathon (1/2 mile).

All proceeds from Saturday’s games and concessions benefit Door County nonprofit organizations. For a full schedule of events and games visit
