Variety of Events along Lake Erie

Ashtabula County, Ohio's largest county, located along Lake Erie and the Pennsylvania border in Northeastern Ohio, is home not only to America's longest and shortest covered bridges but to many other attractions and some great events.
 For the 12th consecutive year D-Day Ohio, Inc. will invade the quiet lakeside town of Conneaut on August 19 and 20 and bring together historians and patriots from across the United States and Canada to help relive June 6, 1944 – the largest combined amphibious and airborne landing in history.
Come and experience living history displays on the shores of Lake Erie in Conneaut, Ohio at Conneaut Township Park and learn about the planning, tools, preparations, and sacrifices made by those who stormed the beaches of Normandy. Visit living history encampments, battle reenactments, lectures, displays, and kids learning zone. Watch as over 400 reenactors occupy pre-invasion encampments and engage in 3 unique battles. 
Mark your calendars for the 3rd annual Wine & Walleye Festival held in the historic Ashtabula Harbor from August 26 to 28.
