Subfest & Four on the Shore in Manitowoc« Back to Events
Subfest in Manitowoc celebrates its 7th annual event July 3-4, 2021, at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum, in combination with the annual Four On the Shore along the lakefront! Come celebrate the 4th of July in Manitowoc at this lakeside celebration, including live music all day, food, self-guided submarine tours, fireworks, kid-friendly activities, a parade, and so much more!
Wisconsin Maritime Museum admission is ONLY $4 all day for everyone, thanks to support from Meijer. General grounds will be open, and there will be special ticket pricing for Tall Ship Adventure tours.
Manitowoc is easy to access via I-43, U.S. 10, U.S. 151, or Highway 42. Follow Waldo Blvd. or U.S. 151 from I-43 to get to the downtown and lakefront areas, and be ready for a fantastic time! Don’t forget to pick up some candy and sweets at Beerntsen’s on 8th Street while you’re there (it’s a State Trunk Tour favorite) and explore Manitowoc’s two craft breweries, PetSkull Brewing downtown and Sabbatical Brewing Company on the west side of town!
