The 4th Annual Bash on the Bay is NOW CONFIRMED for 2021!!
The wait is over! We finally know the dates for the 2021 “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 25th and 26th, 2021. Eagle-eyed observers will note that there are two days listed above. That’s because in 2021, the 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.
In 2019, Kid Rock stepped in as the headlining performer alongside Uncle Kracker and the island went crazy! Both of 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 and from the Put-in-Bay concert. On the water, boats came in from Catawba, Toledo, Port Clinton, and even Detroit and Cleveland to enjoy the music festival! Meanwhile, all of the Put-in-bay lodging, home rentals, condos, hotels and resorts on the island were completely sold out.
Bash on the Bay 4 News
The two headlining acts have been signed and finalized for their Put-in-Bay appearances. The organizers had been waiting to announce the line-up until a more aggressive distribution of the Covid-19 vaccination rolls out. Thanks to Operation Warp Speed, that goal has been accomplished. However, IF the Bash gets canceled for a Covid-19 related reason, tickets will still be refunded.
The wait is now over. Once again, the headlining acts will be some of country music’s biggest names! Previous headliners include Rascal Flatts, Toby Keith, and Kid Rock. This year, we have the pleasure to announce that the first night of the Bash will be on August 25th featuring Blake Shelton with Runaway Jane. The second night of the Bash will be on August 26th featuring Keith Urban with Carly Pearce.
The change to two nights is because the Put-in-Bay Bash On The Bay organizers intend for the 2021 Bash to be by far the biggest and best yet. Put-in-Bay is committed to making Bash On The Bay 4 an incredible 2021 Put-in-Bay upcoming event for everyone who comes to Ohio’s hottest tourist destination. Tens of thousands of concert-goers have made it to Put-in-Bay for one or all of the previous three Bash events. Changes both big and small are being made to the 2021 event based on the guest feedback received.
We are excited to see you in Put-in-Bay, Ohio this August 2021. We suggest you mark your Google calendars now so you don’t forget! Don’t let Covid-19 (the coronavirus) make you feel like there is no hope for what’s to come. Plan your Bash on the Bay 2021 now so you don’t miss out on great lodging specials.
