Celebrate the holiday season all weekend long during Sturgeon Bay's Christmas by the Bay celebration. along with holiday open houses in stores.  In lieu of a Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony this year, Destination Sturgeon Bay will be doing Car Parade throughout Sturgeon Bay on Friday, November 20. Beginning at 6:15 pm, community members will meet in their vehicles at the Door County Cooperative, 317 Green Bay Road.

As Santa passes storefronts on Friday evening, businesses will tear down their window wrappings to unveil the beautiful holiday displays. Santa will 'unwrap' Sturgeon Bay for the holidays, and community members participating in the car parade will see Sturgeon Bay lit up for the first time this season.

Join us on Saturday, November 21 at 5pm for a virtual reading of 'The Night Before Christmas: Door County Edition' read by Santa himself! The event will be held online via Destination Sturgeon Bay and Let's Go Door County's Facebook pages. Kids can ask Santa questions and interact with him, virtually, as the night goes on.

Come to Sturgeon Bay for holiday shopping, reading a book by the fire, going on hikes through our many parks, and making many lifelong family memories!  Sturgeon Bay lodging, shops and restaurants are open year-round!
