Port Washington Fall Festival & Love Our Great Lakes Day« Back to Events
Port Washington, which calls itself “Your Home Port” for a reason, it’s gorgeous in that downtown area and along the marina, hosts the annual Port Washington Fall Festival on Saturday, October 9th from 11am to 4pm. It’s a “two-fer”, though – 9:30am to 4pm it’s also Love Our Great Lakes Day.
First, the Port Washington Fall Festival celebrates the autumnal season right downtown with a farmer’s market, live music, great food and drinks, even a Fall Family Run along Franklin & Grand in downtown Port. The shops up and down the downtown streets will be ready with their offerings, and of course checking out the harbor area, Rotary Park, the marina, Coal Dock Park, Inventors Brewpub, and more are must-stops when you’re down there. The Fall Festival begins at 11am and runs full force until 4pm, with plenty of fun to follow – stick around and enjoy!
For nature and water lovers, Love Our Great Lakes Day offers a detailed examination of the waters of Lake Michigan and the other Great Lakes, with speakers and afternoon field site visits of restoration work at Mineral Springs Creek and Birchwood Hills, a bird hike through Coal Dock Park led by Observatory staff, music by the Green Sails, tours through the Heart of the Harbor and the Port Washington Exploreum, and more.
It’s easy to get to downtown Port Washington: just follow Highways 32 or 33 from I-43 or Highway 57. VISIT Port Washington‘s office is right downtown too, and you can get more information while you’re down there, or call (800) 719-4881.
