Roofing of the Goats Parade


Join us for the 8th Annual Roofing of the Goats Parade.

Parade begins at the corner of Mill Road and Highway 42 in downtown Sister Bay, and goes a trot, kick, and a leap down the road to Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant. The parade culminates with the roofing of the first goats of the season at Al Johnson’s (weather permitting – the goats don’t go on the roof in rain or snow).  The Goat Parade will be followed by Al Johnson’s Annual Goat Fest, located at Stabbur Beer Garden (next to the restaurant). Goat Fest will feature all day festivities including: live music, kid’s games, various beverages, great food, and a Swedish Pancake Eating contest.  Other businesses throughout town will also be celebrating with specials.

All goats are invited to participate in the parade! (please leash or harness goats)  Goat costumes, Viking hats, and other creative endeavors are encouraged.

Returning this year is the Goat Drop Contest. Help support the Northern Door Food Pantry and have some fun as well. With a purchase of a goat drop sticker, you will be entered in to win a Leinenkugels’s kayak from Husby’s and Flanigan’s Distributing, a VIP tour and private tasting for 10 people from 3 Sheeps Brewing Co., $100 gift card from Al Johnson’s, or a Lunch and Farm Tour from Door County Creamery.  Stickers will be placed on the street along the parade route. To win, a Goat must make a deposit on your sticker during the Goat parade.  All proceeds will go to the Northern Door Food Pantry at the Sister Bay Baptist Church. Stickers will be available for purchase at the parade, or if you can’t attend you can still join in on the fun and purchase your stickers online. You do not need to be present to win! Buy your stickers HERE

Parade line up begins on the southeast corner of Highway 42 (N. Bay Shore Dr.) and Mill Road, and begins at 10:30 a.m. Don’t be late…the goats walk fast!
