The Grohmann Museum hosts its tenth annual festival celebrating the activities and ways of work captured in the paintings and bronzes in the museum’s permanent collection. Blacksmiths, shoe carvers, spinners, lace makers, sculptors, master painters, a luthier and glass founder all share their expertise and demonstrate their techniques as the Grohmann Museum becomes a laboratory for the creation of Lost Arts. The museum’s docents will provide hands-on demonstrations and further insight into the collection.
The tradition lives on at Sister Bay’s 74th annual Fall Festival, Friday, October 18-20, 2019. Join us for 3 days of family fun, kids games, great music, local food and our huge Arts & Crafts Fair. The Lion’s Club Classic Car Show and Fish Boil are yearly favorites along with Saturday’s Kiwanis Club Pancake Breakfast followed by our annual Fall Fest Parade. We’re looking forward to seeing you again this year!
