Door County hopes to cash in on region's big weekend

A soccer supporter, an aviation enthusiast, and a gamer walking into a bar is not the start of a punchline but a real possibility if you travel around Door County this weekend. In addition to Saturday’s exhibition match at Lambeau Field between Manchester City and Bayern Munich, EAA is kicking off its AirVenture festival, and Kitsune Kon, a gaming and anime convention, is taking place in Green Bay. That has led to hotel rooms being well over $200 in Green Bay and Appleton and as much as $670 in Oshkosh, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Those counties could see approximately 10 percent of the tourism impact over the next ten days. Door County has offered itself to be a nice side trip for people visiting Green Bay for sporting events and other attractions, a trend Jen Rogers from Destination Door County hopes continues.

Door County is experiencing its own influx of visitors, with cherry picking season entering its second week. As a result, Rogers says there is very limited room availability this weekend.
