After a record-setting summer in Door County this year, we’re heading into what is shaping up to be one of the biggest holiday seasons we’ve ever seen. Sister Bay’s Christkindlmarkt is back, bigger and better, for a second season. New events as well as Door County holiday traditions are kicking off all over the county. This month, we thought we would simplify your planning by giving you some great links with information on the many options that await you for your Door County holiday getaway. 

Here at Open Hearth Lodge, we’re in the Christmas spirit already. We have rooms available for the season, and although we make a great home base for your holiday shopping and dining, you might just want to stay in! With a cozy room for your and the whole family, a blazing fire in the lobby fireplace, a warm pool and hot tub, and 2 outdoor fire pits, you can stay warm and fuzzy while you enjoy the spirit of the season. We hope to see you soon!

Holiday Activities

It’s not just us that is excited for the season here in Door County, our close neighbors to the south have taken notice as well. Fox 11 in Green Bay aired a nice overview of what’s coming this season, from holiday lights to Christkindlmarkt to caroling. The links below the video provide you with everything you need to know. Those are great ideas, but don’t forget the traditions. Destination Door County brings you some of the perennial events that make the holidays in Door County so memorable.

With a visitor count estimated at about 10,000 in its inaugural year, there was little doubt that the Sister Bay Historical Society’s Christkindlmarkt would be back in 2022. Nearly twice as many vendors will present unique holiday gifts, food, drink and more at the Corners of the Past Museum this year over three holiday weekends.
