Plan Your Quinceañera

Your daughter's quinceañera should be a grand celebration and Blue Harbor Resort is an ideal destination! Gather family and friends together to celebrate your girl's 15th birthday with style on the shores of Lake Michigan in Sheboygan, WI. The banquet space features lake views and patio access to keep the party going around the bonfire well into the evening.

The tradition of a quinceañera party goes back centuries and celebrates a young girl's transition into adulthood to celebrate her 15th birthday. We want to honor your traditions to make this an evening you'll remember for the rest of your life.
