Ellison Bay, Wisconsin, June 2, 2015 - Door County North, the business association for far northern Door County, Wisconsin, encompassing Liberty Grove, including the Ellison Bay-Gills Rock region, has announced the return of the Door Peninsula’s county-wide food and wine festival: Uncork Summer. Door County is nationally renowned for its natural beauty, and in recent years has developed a reputation as one of the Upper Midwest’s best dining destinations.
 
Scheduled for Saturday, June 27 from 10 am to 5 pm, Uncork Summer will again be held the same weekend as the area’s decades-old family-oriented festival, Olde Ellison Bay Days. Uncork Summer will be located outdoors on the grounds of Wickman House (
www.wickmanhouse.com), a highly-regarded restaurant at 11976 Mink River Road in Ellison Bay, and will feature twenty food vendor booths, plus local wines, craft beers and unique cocktails. Well-known local acoustic musicians, Katie Dahl and Small Forest, will perform live throughout the day.
 
Door County North’s Community Coordinator, Darcie Pilz, said Uncork Summer is coming back due to high demand. “Uncork Summer is focused on creating an atmosphere for the enjoyment of new food and beverage experiences, with small plate dishes from restaurants throughout Door County, locally-produced foods from area markets, and wine and beer tastings,” said Pilz.
 
Expansive free parking for the event will be located at the Liberty Grove Historical Society property at the top of the Ellison Bay hill. Free shuttles will ferry visitors from the parking areas and make stops at both Olde Ellison Bay Days’ shoreline site and Uncork Summer, on the Wickman House restaurant grounds.
 
“Uncork Summer was such a success last year, we had to host the event again this year! “ said Darcie Pilz. “We continue to see this festival as a key opening event for the coming summer tourism season.”
 
There is no admission fee to attend Uncork Summer, and inexpensive tickets for food, wine, beer and cocktails are available on-site. Tickets are $5 each, the price for both individual small plate dishes and drinks.
