Historical Weekend 2021

Put-in-Bay celebrates the 203 anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie on this most historic of weekends. This is a celebration of history, art, and music and also a celebration of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry’s naval victory over the British. Since then, there have been two centuries of peace shared by the United States, Canada, and Great Britain.

A War of 1812 military encampment can be found on the lawn of the Monument Visitors Center all weekend and over 1,000 Boy Scouts camp out in tents on the Memorial’s east lawn for their annual camporee on Lake Erie. A focus on Put-in-Bay History and the importance it pleased in the War. For families attending the event, the Put-in-Bay Resort is the closest to the event and the host hotel.
