Put in Bay Christmas in July

7/20/18 - 7/21/18

christmas in july put-in-bay

This is by far the biggest and best weekends at Put-in-Bay all summer long! We’ve even been voted “Best Place for Christmas in July”! The Christmas spirit floods the community and everywhere you look there is an elf or Santa peeking out of a doorway. Island businesses go all out and decorate just like it was the real Christmas. Garland, lights, bells, and Santa hats abound. Holiday drinks are on the menu at most of the local watering holes and island hotels and rental homes are filled to capacity. On Saturday Night, there is a traditional parade of Christmas floats that meanders through the downtown area and on Sunday the Christmas themed car parade excites and delights island visitors young and old. These are by far the busiest weekends of the season so plan ahead accordingly! Hotels and rental homes sell out months in advance, and it is not uncommon for the best hotels and homes to be sold out by February!!! For groups who want a rental home or waterfront condo rentals, please call 216-898-9951. For downtown hotel reservations, please call 888-742-7829 or 419-285-3101. read more

CANCELLED!

Almost all of the local bars and restaurants perform unique skits and zany theatrics as they compete for prestige and honor. Events include the parade skit, keg roll, can carry, bartender song, best drink pour, bartender trivia, and the best drink (using the host liquor company’s product, of course!). MC’d by Ray Fogg and “Duff”, this event always draws a huge crowd to enjoy the fun and silliness. read more

Island Green Week on Put-in-Bay and Middle Bass Islands this summer will make you remember what you loved most about the islands as a kid – water, rocks, cliffs, caves, kayaking, meteor showers, moss, moonlit nights, beach bonfires, cozy camping, swimming, beach combing, cottaging with your family, ferry rides, staying the night at the lake and nature. Lets do it all over again during Island Green Week, August 4th through the 11th, 2018, on Middle Bass Island and Put-in-Bay in Lake Erie, Ohio. Three of the biggest organizations and proponents of nature on the Erie Isles have teamed together to bring you some great activities during this week-long event. Experience a taste of the unique wine culture, an island-style pig roast, kayaking a Great Lake, and a dedication of the newest lakefront nature preserve on Put-in-Bay. See wildlife, flora and fauna. Sail on a meteor shower cruise, and by special invitation explore, tour and hike island places people would not normally see. Island Green Week includes activities for adults, families and children. Special pricing and coupons for events, restaurants, transportation and entrance fees will be available for Green Week participants. read more
