Put-in-Bay Mardi Gras Weekend May 10th – 12th!

In case you missed Mardi Gras week in New Orleans this  February, no need to fret; we’ve brought Mardi Gras to Put-in-Bay, Ohio, instead! You know a bunch of your friends at Put-in-Bay are always down for a great party. Put-in-Bay celebrates an island-wide Mardi Gras weekend in May each year. Get ready to collect some bawdy colorful beads because things are going to get crazy fun! Join up with your friends and head out to Put-in-Bay’s Best Bars for their Mardi Gras celebrations.

Mardi Gras Weekend Stops

  • Goat Soup and Whiskey (EVERYONE has to have a cocktail here!)
  • The Keys (stroll thru the marina and check out the boater’s beads)
  • The Reel Bar (have fun on the outside deck as the world goes by!)

Put-in-Bay, Ohio has so many incredible bars to select from that you can party like every day is Fat Tuesday! Perhaps you would rather enjoy your cocktail at one of our popular Put-in-Bay swim-up bars? Bring the Mardi Gras festivities to The Blue Marlin Bar & Grill at the famous Put-in-Bay Resort! Voted Put-in-Bay’s most popular pool bar, their 25000 square foot pool deck with 60 people hot tub is the place to see and BE SEEN! 

Mardi Gras By Day Means Pools & Swim Up Bars!

Plenty of seating areas for those who prefer to say dry in their relaxing lounge chairs! Enjoy live entertainment every weekend from DJ ADubb, Ohio’s well-known party DJ. He plays at the Blue Marlin every Friday & Saturday in May thru mid-September.  As the night rolls in, dress to the 9’s and head into town for live entertainment at the popular Put-in-Bay bars on the main strip.
