Cleveland, OH - Put-in-Bay will grow from 650 full-time residents to hosting over 30,000 visitors in a Two Day country music festival known as Bash On The Bay 2021. The annual event has grown from a one-day concert to a two-day festival of country music.
August 25th & 26th the local airport will cease operations for two days and its runways and surrounding areas will become the stage for Blake Shelton and Keith Urban who are headlining the annual event.
Each day of the Bash On The Bay 2021 is expected to draw at least 15000 people who will depend on the ferry boats and their late-night service to return to the mainland at the conclusion of the show each night. Local hotels were booked to capacity within hours of the announcement of the event this spring.
Gates will open at 2:30 PM on Wednesday, August 25, for the all-day event and entertainment will begin at 3:00 PM with appearances by Runaway June, Cale Dodd, John King Cumberland Run, and headliner Blake Shelton.
Thursday times will be the same with shows by Carly Pearce, Walker Hayes, Cory Farley, The Outliers, and headliner Keith Urban.
A wide variety of food & beverage outlets will provide for concert goers. No outside food or beverage will be permitted inside the event and once you have entered the concert grounds there is no re-entry.
A Bash On The Bay 2021 Pool Party will be held on August 24th, 25th & 26th at the Put-in-Bay Resort's famous Blue Marlin Bar & Grill from 11 AM until 6 PM with a pair of VIP tickets being given away each day. The event is open to the public.
