Vendor Registration

Our annual Door County Winter Wedding Expo is scheduled in conjunction with Sturgeon Bay’s ever-popular and well-attended Fire & Ice Festival (500-2000 festival goers), held each year on Valentine’s Weekend – a great time to focus on love and marriage!


Join us at The Lodge at Leathem Smith for an opportunity to showcase your products and services at a wedding expo designed specifically to promote local venues and wedding vendors…

Why this time of year…

propose-marriageStatistical analysis shows that the Christmas Holidays far outrank Valentine’s Day as the most popular time of the year to propose marriage. With all of these fresh commitments in place, just after the New Year rolls out, we’d like provide couples with an opportunity to jumpstart their wedding planning here in Door County. Fire & Ice Festival already draws thousands of people to Sturgeon Bay, so we have an established audience. By partnering with Fire & Ice, we are adding an indoor component to the festival, one that will take the chill off crowds if they are faced with unusually cold or blustery weather. The Door County Trolley will run continuously on Saturday, providing downtown visitors with a free ride to the Expo at Leathem Smith.

What we hope to accomplish…

We feel there are two major marketing points that we’d like to establish with couples planning to marry. Door County is a four-season wedding destination. If you are young, perhaps with limited financial resources and want to make the most of your budget, the off-seasons in Door County provide all sorts of incentives and bargains with easy access to many of the venues that are typically booked solid in summer. Vendors are often willing to adjust their rates in the quiet season. With almost half of the weddings that take place here being conducted by couples that are non-residents of Door County, we want to insure they know that everything “wedding” is available right here. With our wealth of local talent and expertise in the wedding industry, they don’t need the risk and added expense of contracting with vendors for goods and services provided from afar.

Space is limited and yet quite affordable…

We are hoping to work as a team with a predominance of vendors from Door County and thus we are offering a total of 75 booth spaces, approximately 10′ with an 8′ table in the spacious exhibit hall at the Lodge at Leathem Smith for a reasonable fee of $125. We will provide a floor plan and the option to reserve your desired spot upon completion of your registration.
