The Sturgeon Bay Harvest Fest and Street Art Auction was well-attended with people of all ages enjoying local vendors, vintage cars and the auction of the Benches by the Bay. The Benches by the Bay were created by 25 artists with Door County ties and have been seen on the streets of Sturgeon Bay since May. Pamela Seiler, the Executive Director of the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center, with the help of many volunteers, coordinated the lively auction to bring the iconic benches and their new owners together.
The Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center’s new Marketing and Promotions Director, Savanna Townsend, along with the center’s other staff and volunteers now look to the continued planning of the next event, the Christmas by the Bay. This event is held on the weekend before Thanksgiving beginning with a tree lighting ceremony, followed the Christmas parade the next day and wrapping up with a special breakfast with Santa.
