Jacksonport's Maifest celebrates 50 years

You can kick off your Memorial Day festivities this weekend in Jacksonport at one of Door County’s oldest festivals. Maifest celebrates its 50th year in 2023 by continuing the many traditions that have helped it reach the milestone. The two-day event begins on Saturday with a juried art fair, activities on the Maifest Family Midway, a parade, live music, and food. Sunday’s slate includes much of the same fun, but it also features the 40th running of the Maifest 10K Run and 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk. Race organizer Annie Kapolnek says it means a lot to the whole community that the Memorial Day tradition continues in Jacksonport.
