Travel Update
Only essential businesses and some take out restaurants are open. Please click here for a list of what’s available.

The health and safety of our guests and all who live and work in the Shores & Islands region is our top priority. This, combined with many state and federal travel restrictions, has resulted in event venues being temporarily unavailable to groups. Please continue to use this site as a resource for planning and research. We are asking you to Plan Now. Visit Later. The Lake Erie Shores & Islands Group Accounts team is available to assist you in planning for when travel and other restrictions are lifted and we can welcome you back.

Ohio’s Lake Erie Shores & Islands hosts competitive, entertaining and charitable events at our numerous indoor and outdoor venues. All year round we welcome gymnastics, dance, cheer, bowling and billiard competitions, while our beautiful outdoor green spaces draw seasonal sports like golf, lacrosse, volleyball and soccer. Lake Erie and its tributaries offer a refreshing natural venue for fishing tournaments, sailing regattas and other water sports. And our miles of coastline are the perfect backdrop for everything from 5Ks to marathons to obstacle challenge races. How can we help you plan your next sporting event?
