Performing arts feature artists who use their voices, bodies or other objects to express themselves — so unlike visual arts, these subjects don’t stand still. From dance to musical theater to opera and plays, there are many ways to experience the performing arts. And Door County has plenty of events to usher in the winter and holiday season.
Door County has been inhabited for more than 11,000 years! Long before European explorers and settlers arrived, it was home to early hunters and gatherers and, later, to various Native American tribes.
