Have some fun at Plunge Town from 9am-1pm while waiting for friends and family to take a dip in the cold waters of Lake Erie!  Sheetz, Inc. will be there to help warm everyone up with free coffee & hot chocolate!


Pitch a tent, hang your team banner, play some corn hole games and tailgate with your team, friends and fellow plungers.  Bring the party and have TONS of fun; but remember no open containers or open flames!



We are excited to announce that Matt Boland will again be entertaining our crowd at the 2017 Erie Plunge!  Founder of Matty B and the Dirty Pickles & Potwhole, Matt “Broke” Boland is a singer songwriter from Erie PA with a catchy brand of songs and a contagious energy in his stage show.  Winner of 4 rock Erie Music Awards and one blue pike Music Award, Matt Boland is a traveling one man band act letting his songs do the talking and his feet do the rocking.  If the nostalgic sounds of 50s rock and roll, rockabilly, blues, country and folk are what you’re looking for, then go for Broke!  https://www.facebook.com/BrokeBoland/


First to Eleven, previously known as M4, will be joining the band line up again in 2017 at the Erie Plunge.  Erie’s very own local talent, First to Eleven can claim to be the first back to back winners of the Tri-C High School Rock off at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland since 2002-2003.  They will have the Plunge participants, spectators & fans on their feet that day as they cover today’s hits as well as some original pieces! Check them out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FirsttoEleven/


Check out the Erie Ice Carvers demonstration that will be taking place from 9am-11am.  We can’t wait to see the original works of art that they create!


Come roast some hot diggity dogs with us! Erie’s own Smith’s Hot Dogs has generously donated wieners and sausages to this year’s plunge. We can’t wait to get cooking!
