The annual Founders Day Celebration at Put-in-Bay will be held in the center of the village at DeRivera Park. This free, family-focused island event, is hosted by the Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce, and celebrates the founding of Put-in-Bay by Hispanic merchant Jose DeRivera. Founders Day will feature St. Paul’s traditional strawberry shortcakes & live entertainment playing popular tunes in a fair-type atmosphere. There will also be local crafters and jewelry makers selling their wares. Pick up a vintage Put-in-Bay souvenir, handcrafted items, tee-shirts, jewelry and more.
