Algoma’s annual Shanty Days festival is a “Celebration of the Lake”. Since Algoma sits on the shores of Lake Michigan, we have good reason to celebrate. Thanks to the lake we have fish, beaches, and huge stretches of water on which to boat. The lake keeps us cool in the summer and gives us something beautiful to look at in the winter.
Shanty Days 2011 takes place August 12 – 14. Highlights include:
- Parade (Saturday at noon)
- Fireworks (Sunday at dusk)
- Street Fair (Saturday and Sunday)
- Arts & Craft Show (Saturday and Sunday)
- Lots of live music
There’s also a 5K walk/run (Saturday morning), and an area “Just for Kids”. Shanty Days wouldn’t be Shanty Days without the Fishing Contest, held Thursday through Sunday. Call 920.883.9792 for more information. We hope you’ll take this opportunity to stop by our Algoma, Wisconsin Winery. We pour all of our wines in the Tasting Room, and guests are welcome to enjoy purchased bottles of wine on our terrace. Our Cuisine Concert Series on August 13 will feature The Modern Day Drifters, a Door County band known for its genre-crossing style and super fun music. Drop by any time between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. for music, food, and delicious Wisconsin Wine. Additional information about Shanty Days is available at the Algoma Chamber of Commerce.
