The Put-in-Bay Music Festival (new event)

Put-in-Bay Music Fest

Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial’s longstanding tradition of celebrating peace through music has evolved into hosting the first Put-in-Bay Music Festival on Saturday, June 10, beginning at 11:00 AM.

“Perry’s Victory is excited to be a part of the Put-in-Bay Music Festival,” said Park Superintendent Barbara Fearon. “Music brings us together, exposes our commonalities, and promotes an atmosphere of peaceful coexistence.” This event is made possible only through the help of several valued partners. The Miller Boat Line is the primary sponsor of the Put-in-Bay Music Festival, she said, adding the event also benefited from an Ohio Arts Council grant that matched the ferry service’s contribution. Heidelberg Distributing is sponsoring two cornhole tournaments and the National Park Service is making substantial in-kind contributions. read more
