Fall Door County Lighthouse Festival
Fall: Oct. 4-6, 2024
This fundraising Festival weekend includes air, land-based, boat, and adventure tours that provide access to all 11 of the treasured lighthouses of Door County and 3 of our neighbors to the south. Many of the tour excursions are unique to the Lighthouse Festival weekends and provide visitors exclusive access to lighthouses not typically open to the public – Chambers Island, Plum Island, and Sherwood Point Lighthouses. There are tours for all levels of activity and accessibility. Some tours involve hiking. Boat tours depart from a variety of locations around the Peninsula, including Sister Bay, Gills Rock, and Baileys Harbor. A portion of each Lighthouse Festival tour ticket helps fund the Door County Maritime Museum & Lighthouse Preservation Society.
FOR 2023: Grassy Island Range Lights and Algoma and Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouses are open OR hosting visitors!
Please note: The interiors of the Algoma Pierhead Lighthouse, and the Sturgeon Bay Pierhead Lighthouse, are NOT open for visitors. You cannot get to the buildings, due to openings in the breakwalls.
