Put-in-Bay Music Festival at Perry's Victory
Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial celebrates peace through music by hosting the second annual Put-in-Bay Music Festival. A collaboration between the National Park, the Perry Group, the Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce, the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society, and title sponsor, Miller Boat Line, the free concert is also supported with a grant from the Ohio Arts Council. The 2018 entertainment line-up includes Groovement, The Low Down Brass Band, Hillbilly Casino, Swingmania, and The Reese Dailey Band. The festival will include a craft area where kids can make a variety of musical instruments and music workshops where all ages can learn how to play the ukulele and basic drumming. Many games will be available for free play throughout the day including Guitar Hero, corn toss, and large-scale lawn games such as checkers. Festivities will also include a living history area where you can learn more about the War of 1812 and what it might have been like during the Battle of lake Erie. Food, beer, and soft drinks will also be available for purchase on site (personal coolers are not permitted). The park will open at 10 am with food and beverage sales beginning at 11 am. Musical performances will start at 1 pm with the last band finishing around 7 pm.
