Port Wing is an unincorporated community in the Town of Port Wing, Bayfield County, Wisconsin, United States. It is located on Wisconsin Highway 13, 7 miles west of Herbster. The Flagg River enters Lake Superior at Port Wing's harbor. A large number of the town's inhabitants are retirees, since the town has scant economic activity and this has caused a number of young people to leave in search of better opportunities. The town's facilities include the South Shore High School, a post office, and a volunteer fire department, as well as a small historical society building with documents and photographs related to Port Wing's history. There are also several small art and craft galleries in the town. The largest employers are the South Shore High School and Everett's Fishery, named for its founder, Everett Johnson, and currently owned by his son, Eric Johnson. Logging, fishing, dairying and apple orchards were formerly the main economic activities in the town. Several orchards and dairy farms still remain, but the brownstone quarries have been flooded by rising Lake Superior waters and logging has become infrequent because of the poor quality of much of the standing timber. The largest annual event in the town is the Fish Boil, held at the Port Wing Town Hall and Pavilion. The event includes boiled trout, live music, and the like. Other events include a Lutefisk/Swedish Meatball Dinner, a Christmas Bazaar, and farmers' markets.
