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

Local Brewery on Put-in-Bay? Yes!

The Put-in-Bay Brewery & Distillery, located on South Bass Island in Lake Erie, underwent a massive remodeling over last winter. The changes were so dramatic that many returning guests admitted that they were confused.

Co-owner and brewer Carl Krueger shared that the brewpub, which opened in 1996 and is in a former firehouse, was in line for a much-needed update, especially to keep up with other bars on the island that have done significant face-lifts over the last several years.

The 8.5-barrel Price-Schonstrom brewing system was moved upstairs and out of sight, while the bar was extended, new booths and furniture were added, a tin ceiling was installed. Stones now form an attractive wall behind the bar. Krueger estimated that they invested anywhere from $400,000 to $500,000 in the remodeling. read more

PUT-IN-BAY – People often think of Put-In-Bay for the partying and weekend revelry, but there is another side to island life that most don’t usually get to see – the local and community philanthropy. Thanks to 11-year-old McKenna Stacy of Put-in-Bay, the Island Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary in Port Clinton was able to provide medical care for a few more dogs after Stacy donated $1,290 to the sanctuary.

“She said we could use the money for what we wanted, so we used it for vet bills,” said the sanctuary’s CEO and president, Nancy Benevento-Brown. “We have so many infirm dogs here. It’s really the second chance ranch.” read more
