The Door County Folk Festival (DCFF) is one of the most fun-filled, enjoyable and educational dance weekends held in the Midwest. Each year, the DCFF attracts hundreds of participants to Door County, Wisconsin, from all around the U.S., Canada and often other countries. The festival begins on Wednesday of the week following Independence Day. The 2017 Festival will run from Wednesday, July 12th through Sunday, July 16th. This 38th Annual Door County Folk Festival will continue a tradition of enjoyable, extended July weekends in which you can dance (as late into the night as you wish), sing, play, learn, share experiences, eat, party and make new friends in a congenial, relaxed community atmosphere.
The DCFF teaching staff draws from a rich pool of the best local dance leaders, teachers and callers in the Midwest and beyond, including Chicago Area, Milwaukee, Racine, Eau Claire, Madison, Green Bay, Minneapolis/St Paul, Winona, Marquette, Detriot, South Bend, Dayton, Winnipeg, Omaha, Columbus, the Washington DC Area and points east.
The Door Peninsula, mid-America's favorite vacation area, is located in northeast Wisconsin between Green Bay and Lake Michigan. Door County, often described as "the Cape Cod" of the Midwest, has something for everyone, including: sandy beaches, rocky shores, scenic hiking trails & vistas, bike trails, canoeing, sailing & boating, state parks, fishing, "pick your own" orchards, guided and self-guided scenic tours, museums, art galleries, music & theater, water sports, golf, unique shopping opportunities, an outdoor drive-in movie park, and a large selection of restaurants including one with "Goats on the Roof" - which incidentally is the title of a song written by DCFF Founder, Gerhard Bernhard.
