Fate of Marina Fest and Fall Fest to be decided this week

Committees are set to meet soon to decide whether Marina Fest and Fall Fest will occur in Sister Bay in 2020. Chris Hecht, the President of the Door County Fire Chiefs’ Association, is a non-profit representative on the Marina Fest Committee. He says that the structure of the group, which includes a village resident representative, two trustees, and others with a non-profit background, helps to make sure the entire picture is taken into account when events are canceled.

Hecht says it is not decided yet, but he would be surprised if either event is given the go-ahead. Marina Fest happens during Labor Day Weekend traditionally. Hecht says if it is called off, his organization will lose between $10,000 and $15,000 per day.
