Fall is a magical time of year in Door County. The air begins to chill – feel crisper, especially in the morning. The temperatures begin to drop. The air smells a bit different – probably those smells of cinnamon and hot apple cider among the most memorable. The leaves change colors – going from their green hues to warm oranges, reds and yellows. And in Door County it is a great time to participate in a variety of fun-filled celebrations. If you’re planning an autumn getaway, you won’t want to miss these upcoming Door County festivals!
