Maritime Days & Brig Niagara To Be Featured

Join Put-in-Bay locals and visitors of Put-in-Bay as we welcome the US Brig Niagara for the 3rd Annual Put-in-Bay Maritime Celebration. This historic replica is traditionally at the port in Erie, PA, but she will be OURS for one weekend this summer. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry commanded the original relief vessel and it was a key element to the success of the War of 1812. Now, this replica’s use is exhibition and sailing training. Thanks to the Put-in-Bay Jet Express, and the Lake Erie Shores & Islands the Niagara’s visit was made possible by their joint sponsorship. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for June 27-28 to get an up-close and personal look at this beautiful ship and take her on a sea trial!. The best part about the US Brig Niagara visit is that it also coincides with Put-in-Bay’s Pirate Fest held the following weekend!

Starting at 4 PM on Friday, Put-in-Bay’s downtown harbor will be invaded by pirates that have no plans of retreating back to the open water until the following Tuesday afternoon. Adults and children alike will have so much fun on this entertaining weekend. There will be a wide variety of fun activities, contests, and demonstrations to participate in throughout the event.

Weather permitting, the US Brig Niagara will arrive by Friday, June 26th. It will be available for dockside tours throughout the weekend on Saturday and Sunday. Purchase your tickets at Fox’s Dock where Niagara is berthed.
