HOLLA-day Festivities

Put-in-Bay knows how to throw a good party. Ride Jet Express over to South Bass Island to celebrate nationally recognized holidays, as well as some unconventional ones throughout the active season. No one here will judge you for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day twice this year.

Fourth of July

Happy Independence Day, America. Celebrate by visiting Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial and take a seat for some booming fireworks every Fourth of July.

New Year’s in September

Happy New Years…almost. The islanders will tell you, it’s too chilly to celebrate come January, so Put-in-Bay is hosting its annual New Years Party in September. You’ve made it three-fourths of the way through the year, cheers!

Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day

Get your green on and shuffle your way over to PIB for the annual Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day celebration! Join Hooligan’s Pub and other island hooligans, in a parade then help yourself to all the Irish food and drinks your heart desires each September.
