We will be set up at a booth selling tickets for the Boat Raffle at AutumnFest in Baileys Harbor.
The proceeds of the boat raffle benefit the museum’s Operating Fund and at the same time offers you a chance to win over 45 incredible prizes. The raffle drawing will be held during Pumpkin Patch Festival in Egg Harbor over Columbus Day weekend. You do not need to be present to win. Tickets are available for purchase at our Sturgeon Bay location or at most Door County festivals throughout the summer.
Grand Prize: 15ft Adirondack Guide boat
This year’s boatbuilding project is a 15’ Adirondack guide boat. Debuting in the 19th century, Adirondack guide boats were built for speed. They are still widely acknowledged as the fastest fixed seat rowboats ever built. While guide boats resemble canoes they are rowed instead of paddled, are capable of carrying more weight and are famous for winning countless open ocean races
