Enjoy great food (including a Susie Q smelt fry!), live music and games at Rogers Street Days this Friday and Saturday, Aug. 9 & 10.

It’s not ALL about the party, however; the celebration is a major fundraiser for the historic Rogers Street Fishing Village. The museum complex is all about this space upon this big lake: the history of the indigenous peoples who first navigated the Neshotah and Mishicot rivers; the French Canadian immigrants who arrived here almost 200 years ago to establish a commercial fishing industry that continues today; the lost ships that could not overcome the wrath of this body of water that is more sea than lake; and the evolution of the organizations formed to save shipwrecked mariners and passengers, from the old U.S. Life-Saving Service to today’s United States Coast Guard.

Come celebrate and support this gem on the lakeshore whose mission is honoring and remembering.
