The business community of Ephraim, Wisconsin is again gearing up for the start of summer in Door County. We are the village that starts the summer season with a festival to welcome visitors from all over. This year is the 46th year for this Scandinavian celebration on the shores of Eagle Harbor in the village of Ephraim, Door County.
We will have childrens games, a pet parade, arts and craft show along the shore line. Scandinavian dancers , a traditional fish boil and the crowning of the festival Chieftain.
The highlight of the evening is watching the Chieftain light the ceremonial fires along the Ephraim shoreline.
