The Official Putinbay.com and Island Club 20th Anniversary Fall Ball Customer Appreciation Party is Put-in-Bay’s premier annual 2-day fall celebration sponsored by the Island Club Home Rentals. An incredible weekend of free food, free entertainment, free adult beverages, and a huge gathering of friends and family at Put-in-Bay Ohio is coming soon! This year’s Island Club Fall Ball dates are Friday October 5 through Sunday October 7.
Unfortunately this year, the Put-in-Bay Resort has decided at the last minute to not participate in our event and they are throwing a small private party for just their own guests. We at the Island Club and Commodore Resort know that many of you have attended this party for 10+ years. DON’T WORRY!!! YOU ARE STILL INVITED TO ATTEND THE ISLAND CLUB FALL BALL PARTY EVEN THOUGH YOUR HOTEL HAS BACKED OUT OF THE EVENT AT THE LAST MINUTE. Just come to the party on Friday night in our new pavilion area behind the big pool and help us celebrate our 20th anniversary. On Saturday, please come back with your room key and we will gladly provide you a wristband for admission to our private event. We will announce additional lodging partners for our 2019 Spring Fling Party at the event.
This final Put-in-Bay party of the season is designed to thank you, our wonderful guests, for choosing to stay with us on the Island during the summer season. It is also a thank you for patronizing all of our island businesses because we truly are a community here at Put-in-Bay. Island Club Home Rentals, Put-in-Bay Condos, Commodore Resort, and Victory Station Hotel guests are invited to join in on the fun and take part in this 20-year Put-in-Bay tradition. To be part of the Fall Ball party, please call 216-898-9951 to reserve your lodging on Put-in-Bay before it is too late! We have only five houses and a half dozen condos left for the weekend! The Commodore has less than a dozen hotel rooms left.
Don’t miss out on this Put-in-Bay Island favorite. We want to thank you for your continued business with us on Put-in-Bay and have a very fun way to show you our gratitude. What says thank you better than an icy cold beer and a juicy cheeseburger? During the Spring Fling and Fall Ball events, these events have become some of Put-in-Bay’s most sought after events, so be sure to make your reservations EARLY. If for some reason you miss out on the fun or if you have a blast and want to do it again… look forward to the Put-in-Bay Spring Fling, our start-of-season annual customer appreciation party on the first weekend in May!
The main site of the 2018 Fall Ball festival is in the Island Club community just off of Put-in-Bay Road. For 19 years, the party was held on the first street to the right after entering. The cul-de-sac of the Island Club would be closed down and a stage, tables and chairs set out for you to party under the Put-in-Bay sun. However, to celebrate our 20th party anniversary, the Island Club has built new pavilions in the field behind the pool, and the party will be relocating there for an even better experience!
FALL BALL SCHEDULE…
This two day event starts on Friday with a meet and greet at the Island Club with live Put-in-Bay entertainment and a beer truck. Here you can enjoy an icy cold beverage from the draught truck and enjoy some live entertainment al fresco. As dusk nears, fire pits are lit and crowds gather to enjoy the ambiance and hang out with old friends while making new ones. The party then moves to Mr. Ed’s Bar and Grille to continue the night in beautiful downtown Put-in-Bay.
On Saturday at noon, the fun begins again back at the Island Club, with more great music and beer. We fire up the grills and prepare juicy burgers, mouth-watering bratwurst, and traditional hotdogs to enjoy all afternoon while listening to great Put-in-Bay entertainment. There are also firepits set up around the perimeter to provide warmth and ambiance during the Fall Ball party if it gets chilly during the day.
WHERE TO STAY…
The party is hosted at the Island Club Home Rentals subdivision and is exclusively for guests of the Island Club and the Put-in-Bay Condos as well as our friends at the Commodore Resort and Victory Station Hotel. For liability purposes, you must be a guest at one our houses, condos, or lodging partners. Unfortunately, one of our past lodging partners, the Put-in-Bay Resort group, has decided to drop out and will no longer be participating. So please check and make sure that you are staying at an “Island Club Fall Ball Approved” lodging for the party weekend! DON’T WORRY!!! YOU ARE STILL INVITED TO ATTEND THE PUT-IN-BAY FALL BALL PARTY EVEN THOUGH YOUR HOTEL HAS BACKED OUT AT THE LAST MINUTE.
FREE FOOD & DRINK…
On Friday night we gather with about 1500 people and bonfires with 15 kegs of complimentary Frosty Cold Adult Beverages! Saturday from 12pm to 6pm we have a street party with over 2000 hamburgers, hot dogs, brats and assorted condiments and side dishes. Don’t forget about the 30 extra kegs of frosty cold adult beverages we truck in for Saturday!
Each year we proudly offer some of the finest Put-in-Bay entertainers. The Fall Ball party in past years has had appearances from Mike “Mad Dog” Adams, Ray Fogg, and Bob Gatewood from the Calabash band. For many years, the Island Club Fall Ball has enjoyed the musical stylings of J.D. Owen and other favorite island entertainers such as Moving to Boise and the Poptart Monkeys.
There is always incredible music for our party guests. J.D. Owen plays all weekend. The Saturday headliner act, 4TH DAY ECHO, also plays at Mr. Ed’s later in the evening. In the last few years, our guests enjoyed music from Pat Dailey, Bob Gatewood, Ray Fogg, Moving to Bosie, and many many more.
We have two ferry services partnering with us, as usual, and offering round-trip discounts… the Miller Ferry and the Jet Express. Once you arrive on the island, be sure to grab an Island Club Taxi to get you from the ferry to your lodging. You can call ahead from the ferry boat to reserve a private taxi ride by calling 419-285-5466. And last but not least, golf carts sell out quickly! So make sure you reserve your golf cart either online or by calling 216-898-9951.
