The third annual Ephraim Vintage Festival will be held the weekend of September 8-10, which will feature a hill climb and the Concours d’Elegance, which will highlight rare Pre-War European, American Classics, and post-war sports cars. The festival will begin on Friday with a tour of Door County with stops at multiple boutiques, stops at bay side cafes, and art galleries as well. On Saturday, the hill climb runs will begin at 11:00 for all registered drivers. Later in the day, a technical presentation will convene at the Old Village Hall. Festival Executive Director John Baker Welch has done over 100 similar events across the country and says he wanted to take advantage of the ambiance of Door County, especially Ephraim.
There will also be a dinner dance at 6:00 for all event marshals, judges, and participants. On Sunday starting at 11:00, all classic automobiles will be positioned Bayside along Eagle Harbor in Ephraim where each vehicle will be judged and rated.
