Fun fall festivities put pep in Put-in-Bay’s 2020
Fans of summer fun have missed Put-in-Bay this year, but fall brings some new opportunities to celebrate at the village. Chief among the events is a reimagined variation on Put-in-Bay’s Oktoberfest celebrations. Scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 10 and Sunday, October 11, the island is eschewing the usual tent for a more open-concept celebration, inviting attendees to visit restaurants at Put-in-Bay and enjoy a ton of excellent German food. The island will also host a variation on its annual Wine Fest on Saturday, October 3 and Halloween-at-the-Bay is scheduled for the weekend of October 23.
