Put-in-Bay Historical Weekend
September 8, 2017 - September 10, 2017
Put-in-Bay celebrates the 202nd anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie on this most historical 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.
