Put-in-Bay Ohio is bringing some new and exciting musical talent to the island this summer with the Music Fest. They include bluegrass, new grass, folk, zydeco and rhythm & blues. Island visitors will get to experience all this for free this summer as the island kicks off 2017 with the first Put-in-Bay Music Festival on Saturday, June 10, at Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial here on South Bass Island.
“The music festival continues Perry’s Victory’s ongoing celebration of peace through music at the National Park,” said Park Superintendent Barbara Fearon. “We’re looking forward to hosting this event annually at the park.”
The Put-in-Bay Music Festival kicks off at 11:00 AM with the final musical act wrapping about 8:00 PM.
Miller Boat Line is one of the sponsors of this event which is a collaboration between many partners, including the Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce, the National Park Service, the Perry Group (Perry’s Victory’s Friends Group), and the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society.
