Kelleys Island Maritime Festival

June 14, 2019 8:00 am - June 16, 2019 5:00 pm

This year’s Kelleys Maritime Festival will honor the 1978 decision to keep Kelleys Island a place for families, vacations, and residents instead of turning it into parkland, as was the wish of Ohio’s Governor at the time. To protest this decision, a small fleet of islanders “stormed” the mainland in protest, calling themselves the Kelleys Island Navy and received national media attention. This event also culminated in the formation of the Kelleys Island Landowners Association (KILA). Navy Weekend will include many events at businesses all over the island, such as:
