We here at the oldest winery in Wisconsin love living and working where we do. We are proud of our Wisconsin and Lake Michigan hertitage, and enjoy sharing it with visitors. That’s why we are to thrilled about the upcoming 21st Annual Shanty Days Celebration of the Lake.
The festival grounds overlook the scenic Algoma Harbor. There will be lots of fun activities for the whole family: crafts and games for children, an Art Show and Street Fair, and a wide variety of food vendors. The festival runs from August 14 – 16, but if you can, come early. The Shanty Days Fishing tournament starts on Thursday.
If you enjoy running or walking, consider participating in the 5K Walk/Run on Saturday morning – it’s a great way to work up an appetite so you can fully enjoy all that great Wisconsin food at the festival. Or, if you prefer watching other people walk, pull up a chair and enjoy one of Wisconsin’s largest community parades Saturday afternoon. The closing if the festival takes place Sunday at dusk, with spectacular fireworks.
With so much fun happening in town, we hope you will find the time to stop by our Algoma Wisconsin Winery for a taste of wine, and maybe a tour. Our historic building is usually nice and cool in the summer, offering a perfect retreat from the summer sun and heat. A sip or two of our delicious Riesling is especially cooling.
