Join us for the 3nd annual FREE Put-in-Bay Music Festival
Sponsored by Miller Boat Line
About 3,000 people enjoyed a full day of music, games, workshops, food and fun at the 2018 Put-in-Bay Music Festival. Classic rock, funk, southern rock, jazz, blues and swing thrown in for good measure provided attendees a festival that personifies Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial’s long tradition of promoting peace through music.
We had so much fun we’re doing it again on Saturday, June 8, 2019 at our beautiful National Park, Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial’s Peace Garden. The park opens at 10 am, the festival grounds will open at 11 am and the music starts about noon.
This is a FREE, family friendly, outdoor concert with a Lake Erie view. Those attending are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy the beautiful setting of Put-in-Bay’s iconic National Park. There will be an eclectic mix of entertainment on the secondary stage, including the ukulele workshop players, Drew LaPlante and others. There will be beer, wine & beverages available for purchase and food from Rosie’s Rolling Chef and Jimmy G’s BBQ food trucks.
