No Shortage of Great Entertainment

The holiday season isn’t all gift giving and twinkling lights – it’s also a time to enjoy a night out on the town. Door County, as always, has abundant opportunities to catch a great show with your special someone, and the Door County Auditorium’s late fall schedule delivers. Beginning October 22nd, “Blues, Roots and Hoots” offers world class music of various styles, as well as the return of beloved Wisconsin comedian Charlie Berens.

One More Thing: The Fall 50

This weekend marks the 17th year of the Fall 50, a 50-mile relay/run across the scenic, peak-fall-colored western shore of Door County. While the run has gained a strong following, there are also many related events across the county for non-runners.
