June 2021 – Middle Bass Music Festival – July 17

Don’t Miss the Middle Bass Music Festival – July 17

Middle Bass Island State Park and Lonz Winery Patio and Pavilion will be rockn’ and a rolling, jumpin’ and a jiving and generally a fun place to be on July 17th, 2021, when the Middle Bass Music Festival rolls into town. It’s going to be a great time with live music, artist demonstrations, food trucks, beer, wine, and all your neighbors hanging out enjoying some Middle Bass Island charm.

We look forward to the sounds of The Chardon Polka Band – A wildly entertaining look at polkas in the modern age, Cats on Holiday a Zydeco and Funk Folk Band from Cleveland, Sonic Boom fusion jazz from Middle Bass, and the super hot blues guitar of Sam Hooper and his Blues Band from Cleveland. There will be an artist tent where guests will have an opportunity to explore different art mediums. When you get hungry you can enjoy the BBQ from Jimmy G’s or The Port Clinton Rotary Perch Wagon, and to quench your thirst get some beer from Catawba Island Brewing Company, and wine from Heineman’s.

The Middle Bass Music Fest is brought to you by The Middle Bass Dock Company, The Middle BassIsland State Park & Ohio Department of Natural Resources, The Island Grind at the Lonz Winery Press House, Lake Erie Shores and Islands, Ohio Arts Council and your Lake Erie Islands Conservancy LEIC will be selling tee shirts, totebags and handing out a variety of information on our island activities and preserves. Learn about how you can help preserve island property for future generations.

We need volunteers to help serve beer, sell tee shirts and tickets, set up, clean up, coordinate the art demonstration tent and generally pitch in for a good time and a good cause.
