The 4th Annual Bash on the Bay is CANCELLED for 2020! Please check back for info on 2021…
The wait is over! We finally know the dates for the 2020 “Put-in-Bay Bash On The Bay 4”. The massive island country music festival will be returning to the Put-in-Bay Airport on August 26 and 27, 2020. Eagle-eyed observers will note that there are two days listed above, that’s because in 2020, Put-in-Bay Bash On The Bay is becoming a two day event! Rent a golf cart and head up to your favorite Lake Erie Island this coming August.
Last year, Kid Rock stepped in as the headlining performer alongside Uncle Kracker and the island went crazy! Both the Put-in-Bay ferries (The Jet Express and Miller Ferry) were at full capacity and had to run extended hours to accommodate the surge of people headed to the Put-in-Bay concert. Meanwhile, boats came in from Catawba, Toledo, Port Clinton, and even Cleveland to enjoy the music festival! Meanwhile, Put-in-bay lodging, home rentals, hotels & resorts on the island were completely sold out.
