When cherishing signs of normalcy returning in Door County, it’ll be hard to find a more telling sign than music being performed in town squares again. Door County is gearing up for free concerts in the parks that will be back up and down the peninsula this summer. Concerts will take place five days a week starting on Wednesday, June 9th in Sturgeon Bay. Destination Door County Interim CEO and Director of Communications Jon Jarosh says the concerts have always been a really popular activity, because of the togetherness and for the businesses helped by the atmosphere. He does think the county retained much of its’ spirited atmosphere in 2020, but music being back along with other favorites returning will escalate its morale.
Jarosh also credited the communities for making an effort to keep a consistent schedule and limit overlapping of days they hold performances. He also shared positive thoughts on Memorial Day, saying it seemed like people were excited to be out and he predicted that it set the trend for the summer.
