Bidding wars begin on Sturgeon Bay cherries

Door County is famous for cherries, and soon you may be able to own a large cherry that’s good year-round. Until September 18, Destination Sturgeon Bay allows you to bid on the cherries placed around the city this summer. The cherries represent 21 years of Sturgeon Bay public art. This is the second year that the auction is online and the second year in a row that cherries are the art piece of choice. Marketing and Events Director Carly Sarkis says that people from all over the state and even in other states make it a point to participate in the auction each year.


Sarkis says the online auction process is very user-friendly and more accommodating for people around the county. The cherries start at $400 and bids are done in $100 increments. Sarkis says the highest bid on a cherry last year was $4200. Sarkis notes that the proceeds go to the artists and the beautification project fund. 



The title sponsor for the event is Nicolet National Bank and more information on the auction can be found here
