For 2017 EVF is pleased to announce that Saturday’s Hill Climb will be sponsored by the Hagerty Insurance Company. The Hagerty™ Hill Climb is set upon a beautiful and challenging course that winds its way through the picturesque village streets and traverses the steep Niagara Escarpment carved by the glaciers.


FRIDAY, September 8th

Back by popular demand will be Friday’s Hillside Inn of Door County Tour which will green flag the Festival with a delightful driving tour of Door County. The Tour will marshal at the iconic Hillside Inn of Door County located in the center of Ephraim. The Hillside Inn of Door County Tour will guide participants to multiple boutiques, stops at bay side cafes, and unique art galleries that adorn the scenic countryside of Door County.

The Tour finishes back at the Hillside Inn for Registration and Technical Inspection of the cars for Saturday’s Hill Climb. A Welcoming Party is planned for all participants under the Grand Tent adjacent to the Hillside Inn starting at 6:00 PM.
