(2018 Event) The Key West Days tradition has sadly come to an end.
Island entertainers who perform on Put-in-Bay in the summer and in Key West in the winter used to participate in the annual "Key West Days at Put-in-Bay." Key West held its first "Put-in-Bay Days" in February of 2005 with a huge turnout of northerners seeking to escape the winter cold.
You can still check our entertainment page for schedules of the regular entertainers who will be here such as Mike "Mad Dog" Adams, Ray Fogg and Bob Gatewood when you visit the island! (2018 Event)
Put-in-Bay Trivia: Along the lovely shores of South Bass Island (Put-in-Bay), five luxury hotels were built by 1888. One of the hotels, The Hotel Victory is referred to as a symbol of the peak of the lavish 1890’s. Being the biggest summer resort in the U.S. at the time, the Hotel Victory was operating 27 years prior to being ruined by a fire on August 14, 1919. Today, you can still see the remains of some of the foundation and its swimming pool at the South Bass Island State Park.
