Event Details

The 204th Anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie is a celebration of history, art and music and also a celebration of Perry’s naval victory and two centuries of peace shared by the United States, Canada and Great Britain. A War of 1812 Military encampment is open 10 am to 5 pm each day all weekend.

About 1,200 Boy Scouts camp on the memorial’s east lawn for their annual camporee and assist with National Park activities during their stay.
Various activities are planned, including an excursion to the battle site for a wreath laying and memorial service, and a Commemoration of the Battle of Lake Erie and the enduring peace between the United States, Canada and Great Britain.

Art in the Park, an art show and sale sponsored by the Put-in-Bay Chamber, will be held on Saturday, along with a concert and a Harbor Illumination, both sponsored by the Perry Group.
