*** The “traditional” WineFest has been Cancelled until 2021 ***
UPDATE: This year, due to the State of Ohio and Governor’s orders regarding public festivals, social distancing, and masking, you will find local businesses celebrating inside their own bars and restaurants and shops instead of at the park with the usual mass gathering. But don’t worry! This will still be a great weekend, so please come visit and enjoy!
This fun event is located at the Put-in-Bay Winery downtown just along the street from the Boardwalk. It goes from 11:00 AM until 6:00 PM and admission is only $6. With your admission, you get a souvenir wine glass. Guests get to sample hundreds of foreign and domestic wines, including island wines from Heineman Winery and Put-in-Bay Winery, and enjoy a relaxing afternoon of good food, and excellent wine.
Admission is $6 and includes a souvenir wine glass. Sample tickets are $1 and most samples are in the $1-$4 range. Purchase a full bottle to take home. Stop downtown between 11 AM to 6 PM at the Put-in-Bay Winery at the Doller Estate on Bay View Avenue, downtown Put-in-Bay Ohio. Winery tours and a large silent auction that benefits the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society are some of the activities.
This is also the big Fall Ball Party out at the Island Club. Make sure you book your weekend reservation at one of the partner properties (such as Commodore or Island Club), and you will get free admission to that party throughout the day also!
