Snowflakes twinkle in the street lights lined with garland decorating historic Rittenhouse Avenue. The smell of sweet fudge, salty popcorn, and hot cider greets red noses chilled from the crisp December air off of Lake Superior. The Holiday tree stands bright, serving as a beacon for shoppers eager to sample sweet treats, hot drinks and find the perfect gift this holiday season. This and much more await you for your uniquely Bayfield shopping experience on a special night when shops are open late, on Friday, December 1. 

Bayfield Open in Winter

Grab a Shop Hop Passport and collect stamps during your shopping experience and you too could be gifted something special. Many stores have special deals and offers on this Shop Late Until 8 night.

Visitors can collect stamps anytime between November 18 and December 23. Turn in your passport to the Bayfield Chamber to be entered into the drawings. 

Shop Late Until 8

The Bayfield shopping experience turns into a social gathering. Head to Big Top Chautauqua's Backstage and listen to live music from the house band. Rest your feet and your shopping bags by having a drink and a bite to eat in a cozy lounge or pub.  

Explore holiday markets with one-of-a-kind art pieces inspired by the beauty of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands December, 1 and 3. 

Warm cabins, welcoming bed and breakfasts, and motels with superior views are ready to be your home base for your holiday shopping experience this season. Stay right in downtown Bayfield for easy access to shopping and dining or find a secluded cabin just minutes from town where you can cozy up by the fire with a book and beverage.
