Tailgate Weekend At Put-in-Bay – All The Football Games All The Fun!

Fall means football weekends jam-packed with your favorite college and pro teams. Each year as the leaves turn golden brown, America’s favorite pastime roars back to life. It’s football season! No matter who you root for  Put-in-Bay Bars will always have the football games available downtown. Our annual Tailgate Weekend celebrates with poolside cookouts and family fun. The Tailgate Weekend comes courtesy of the Lake Erie Islands Browns Backers, in an effort to fundraise for great causes all over the Lake Erie Islands!

Great Places To Enjoy Tailgate Weekend At Put-in-Bay

Each year, the Tailgate Weekend falls on an NFL’s Weekend and plenty of college football matchups. Since the event is held in northern Ohio at Put-in-Bay, much of the focus on Saturday will be the B1G and  Sunday will be on the Browns, Bengals & Lions. However, they will have all the games available, especially all of those 1 PM games since sometimes the local teams won’t be on until later.

Perhaps the most popular place to watch the big game is at the Put-in-Bay Resorts Blue Marlin Bar Ohio State fans will be well represented on Saturday as their scarlet and grey will be seen everywhere. Their large six foot by 12 foot Jumbotron is the largest in the Lake Erie Islands! Don’t count out seeing some of the maize and blue of Michigan as well!

After Your Big Game Of The Day

If you didn’t get your fill of food at the Tailgate weekend, there are plenty of Put-in-Bay Restaurants nearby to grab a quick bite or a full sit down meal. Margaritas On The Rock at the end of Delaware Avenue serves up the island’s version of Tex Mex with a great view of the Monument. The Chicken Patio is an island favorite and has been serving wine basted chicken for many years.
