put-in-bay days key west

The Key West of the North Returns to the Original Key West

***THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED FOR 2021 AT THE SPONSOR’S REQUEST. Please check back in 2022.***

Sloppy Joe’s Bar has bottled up a bit of Lake Erie’s summer and will open it up in Key West Florida for Put-in-Bay Days! Held on the first Wednesday of February for four nights to celebrate one island’s culture to the other. Put-in-Bay’s best entertainers perform alongside Key West’s most popular performers.

Scheduled to perform again this year are the absolute best performers that Put-in-Bay Ohio has to offer: the infamous Patrick Huston Dailey, Pete and Wayne, Ray Fogg, and usually island legend Bob Gatewood. Take it from us, if you want to go to Put-in-Bay Days, then book your hotel rooms NOW rather than later, because finding last minute accommodations is near impossible (we tried last year)!

This event is a great way to put some Put-in-Bay fun into a long winter season and see your island friends that you don’t usually see between seasons. Have a great day… and we will see you at The Bay Sloppy Joes Bar!

Fun Fact about Put-in-Bay Days

Ray Fogg has performed all 16 years at The Put-in-Bay Music Festival in Key West!


We return for the Music, and to enjoy the audience. Yes, Put-in-Bay Days is rowdy,but what else could be expected. This is the theme which packs the place with northerners! We have been returning for years, and a little does go a long way, as they say. The extra crispy fries are unbelievably great!” – JohnKare
