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 the Wednesday following Independence Day. The 2012 Festival begins on Wednesday, July 11th and continues through Sunday, July 15th. The 33rd Annual Door County Folk Festival continues a tradition of enjoyable, extended July weekends where 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 Festival is staffed by some of the best local dance leaders, teachers and callers in the Midwest and beyond, including Chicago, Milwaukee, Racine, Eau Claire, Madison, Green Bay, Minneapolis/St Paul, Winona, Marquette, South Bend, Dayton, Winnipeg, Omaha and St Louis. The festival also features musicians and orchestras from around the Midwest and sometimes we have guests from the east and west coasts.
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".
