This Weekend in Door County: Door County Century & Corn Fest

The kids might be back in school and the summer might be slowing down, but that doesn’t mean you have to.  There are still lots of fun things do in the county. 

Post-Labor Day might be one of the best times to go out in the county.  The summer weather is still hanging around but the summer crowds have dwindled.  This is the perfect time to get out and take advantage of all that Door County has to offer.  Stop by one of Door County’s numerous beaches and catch some sun, take a hike in one of Door County’s many parks, or jam with the many bands playing this weekend. The county is your oyster!

In between the beaches, parks, and live music, you should check out these fun activities too.  

On Saturday September 8th, stop by Schopf’s Dairy Farm in Carlsville for Corn Fest. Featuring a Corn Maze, children’s games, bakery items, food, a raffle and silent auction, live music, cornhole tournament, and a corn and pie eating contest.  All proceeds benefit the Sunshine House. Here’s a kernel of truth, it might be corny, but this might be the most a-maize-ing time you’ll have this weekend.  More details>>

If you’re looking for a different way to see the county, sign for the Door County Century bike ride on Sunday, September 9th. The event offers 28, 50, 70, 100 miles routes, a Fat Bike cross event, and a post ride barbecue. The legendary 100 mile course spans the peninsula with six rest stop locations including rider favorites Peninsula State Park, Sister Bay, Cave Point, and USCG Channel Lighthouse. This sounds like a wheely good time! Get tickets>>

Football is back!  Also on Sunday celebrate the return of the NFL with the Punt, Pass, & Kick Contest in Sturgeon Bay.  Held at the football field in Sturgeon Bay boys and girls ages 8-12 will punt, pass, and kick. More details >>
