The summer season officially starts this coming weekend for all of Door County and Ephraim is kicking it off with a weekend long festival. Fyr Bal in Ephraim is a long time tradition; it is a celebration of the beginning of summer and there is a lot to do!
Ephraim will be busy with walking tours, music, arts and crafts and food tents on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Friday is a quieter day of the festival with walking tours and ending with a peaceful midsummer’s music festival by Hardy Gallery on Anderson Dock.
Saturday is full of events complete with a regatta presented by the Ephraim Yacht Club, a raffle, a cakewalk and food all day. The celebration carries on into the evening with a traditional fish boil and more music. Then at 8:30 the multiple bonfires lined up along the water are lit creating an impressive image. Finally to end the day fireworks are set off over the harbor at sunset.
Sunday the celebration will continue with more arts and crafts, music, food and a special visit from Bucky the Badger. The festival then winds down in the evening with a family sing-along at the village hall.
Come visit us in Ephraim at High Point Inn to celebrate the beginning of summer! The whole village will be full of excitement and fun!
