Exhibitors line up for art fair return

A sunny day brought a vibrant atmosphere to downtown Sturgeon Bay on Saturday morning that was not present last Memorial Day weekend. Destination Sturgeon Bay is taking in the celebratory weekend by putting on the 23rd annual Fine Art Fair that goes through Sunday. It’s been a while since the organization could put on an event like this, and Destination Sturgeon Bay Marketing and Events Director Carley Sarkis said they’re happy to be back doing what they love to do. She added that the fair is a great way to support artists across the midwest who had a tough year with little to no shows. 


Artists came from all over the midwest to pitch tents and show off their creativity. One of the exhibitors, Mary Oglesby, resides in St. Louis and made the drive the day before from Missouri. Though she has a place in Ephraim, it was her first time participating, and she shared compliments of the event’s setup. 



She also was impressed with the other artists there, and looked forward to seeing all the art and food vendors. Oglesby was impressed enough that she said she’d love to be back if they’d have her. Sarkis also shed light on the busy summer ahead for Sturgeon Bay. 



With the return of the fair came the first time it was at Martin Park instead of Sunset Park.
