FISH DAY in Port Washington is busy indeed! April 13, 2012

Fish Day, a festival celebrating Port Washington’s fishing heritage, will celebrate its 48th year in 2012.  It is always held the third Saturday of July (21st this year) and without a doubt brings more people into Port Washington than any other day of the year.

The warm months of the year are predictably desirable times to visit a lakeshore location and Lake Michigan draws thousands to its shoreline each year. Port Washington is a favorite spot because of its quaint charm, its walkable environment, and the fact that it typically doesn’t feel overrun with tourists. Fish Day is the exception, however, as thousands of people arrive to enjoy the festival.

Increasingly the Port Washington Inn receives reservation requests for Fish Day a year in advance, not only because of the festival itself but also because mid-July is prime time in our area. Because of this, our policies for bookings inclusive of that 3rd Saturday in July fall under the category of HIGH DEMAND DATES and are handled as follows:

1) January 1st of the year of the reserved dates, a 50% NONREFUNDABLE DEPOSIT is required to hold the reservation. This may be charged to a Mastercard or VISA or paid by a check received by that date.   The remaining 50% balance due for the reserved dates is payable 30 days prior to the stay (also by check or Mastercard/VISA).

2) Reservations for Fish Day made 14 or more days in advance of the reserved dates require a 50% NONREFUNDABLE DEPOSIT at the time of booking.   Cancellations of such reservations made 30 days or more prior to the reserved dates will receive a credit certificate in the amount of the deposit less $25 cancellation fee per room reserved.   The credit certificate is valid through June of the following year.

3) Discounts applicable to other dates do not apply to this high demand weekend.
