Please join me for the Belgian kermis in Door County

Aug. 30, Namur, Wis.

Please join me for the Belgian kermis in Door County

Belgian Heritage Center in Namur at 1255 County Road DK (near Brussels, Wis.).

Approximately 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. (Check their website and Facebook page.)

A kermis is a fall harvest celebration. Everybody is welcome for the free live music. You don’t need to be Belgian to enjoy the beer, booyah, and Belgian pies, PLUS ice cream made with a John Deere tractor. Add raffles and my books on sale. The fun time is a fundraiser for the Center.

At the kermis, you’ll see the places found in my new mystery: St. Mary of the Snows church, which is now the Belgian Heritage Center; the old country school where the nuns taught; a roadside chapel; the historic cemetery and gravestones of early Belgian settlers that hold important clues; and more.


Visit the Namur Belgian Heritage Foundation on Facebook.

I now post on Facebook, too. Please visit me there for news and events!
