Benches by the Bay

We have 25 amazing benches done by some incredibly talented artists. These weather resistant benches will be on display around the city throughout the summer, so make plans to see them all. Be sure to share your photos to #SBBenchArt and #SturgSelfie. You just might win a $50 Sturgeon Bay Gift Certificate in our monthly drawing!

Like the sturgeon, lighthouses, and sails of years past, the benches will be auctioned off at a live auction following Harvest Festival, Saturday, September 16 beginning at 5:30 pm. Proceeds from the auction benefit the artists and the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center. Absentee bid forms are available by clicking HERE and are accepted through Friday, September 15th at 3pm.
