Congrats to Audrey Daul with this year’s winning design!  Audrey is responsible for starting the Algoma Rocks movement and rock paintings are among the most desirable to find! Always conscious of creating a happy, welcoming rock painting community, Audrey maintains the Algoma Rocks Facebook Group and introduces new people to the hobby of finding rocks or painting them selves.  Thank you to Audrey for a great design!

In addition to Audrey’s design, there is also a general Shanty Days shirt and all are now on sale at the Algoma Visitor Center and will also be available at the Chamber booth on the Main Grounds during Shanty Days weekend.
Check all the available designs, sizes, and colors here.>>























2018 marks the 32nd Shanty Days Celebration of the Lake and will take place here in Algoma, WI August 10-12, 2018.

This year’s theme is “Algoma Rocks at Living Well” as a nod to the rock painting phenom that hit our town last year and the incredible award for community health given by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
