Cedar Point announces plans for 150th anniversary celebration

Park will open in May; COVID safety protocols to be announced soon.

SANDUSKY, Ohio — Cedar Point is offering a full season of entertainment to celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2021.

The coronavirus pandemic postponed the celebration to this year. Special events are returning, including a nighttime parade and party, new family river adventure ride, and chances to win the Ticket of a Lifetime.

Opening day is set for May 14 and will feature a Wild West frontier festival celebrating hope, health, and harvest. The event will include live music, festive décor, street entertainers, and a special food and drink menu.

More than 100 craft brews, seltzers, ciders, and cocktails will be available.

Frontier Festival runs May 14-16 and 21-23, then daily May 28-June 13.

Snake River Expedition opens May 29 and will be operational through Labor Day. Parents, kids, and grandparents can join the mission to smuggle valuable goods around Adventure Island on the new river boat ride. Riders will perform secret tasks, encounter surprises, and avoid "danger" at every turn.

The 150th anniversary celebration parade will feature floats, dancers, and a "grand finale like no other." Special commemorative merchandise will be for sale.
