Ephraim, Wisconsin has a lavish number of attractions, many of which won’t be around after Labor Day. The summer concert series Evenings in Ephraim comes to a conclusion on Monday, August 31st. Every Monday from 6:00 to 8:00PM at the Harborside Park Gazebo Ephraim celebrates local music. Come out as the sun sets over Eagle Harbor and the humid day turns into a relaxing evening. Highlighting August performances are folk singer Katie Dahl, jazz and pop group the Sam Fazio Trio, Randi Fay & Limited Edition, and Tradecraft. Closing out the series will be the acoustic classic rock and vocal harmonies band, The Sidekicks.
The history of the city and surrounding area is a big part of the culture in Ephraim. The city was founded in the mid-nineteenth century by a Movarian religious community from Norway. The church and the cities founder played a big role in making the city what it is. Movarian Reverend Andreas Iverson not only founded the city, but also set the city up as a port for the Anderson brothers, a Norwegian shipping family. Today, the home of Reverend Iverson and the operations buildings of the Andersons are just a few of over 30 buildings preserved by the Ephraim Historical Foundation.
The Ephraim Historical Foundation has filled the summer with events and tours at their various museums. Alas, as the summer comes to a close so does the foundation’s daily events. While you still can, check out the foundation’s tram, trolley and walking tours of Ephraim and enjoy the unique sites this city has to offer. After Labor Day the Foundation remains open on weekends through mid-October.
Peninsula State Park and Eagle Harbor can occupy a whole weekend. Sand beaches throughout Ephraim give your hot days the relief they want. Kayaking through the harbor is also an option thanks to the Ephraim Kayak Center. Peninsula State Park offers scenery and experience for the ages. Hike the trails of the almost 4,000 acres of park and marvel at the views of the geology. The Park also hosts the Peninsula State Park Golf Course, 18 holes of Door County glory. It does not take long to see why this place attracts almost one-million visitors every year.
