Tybee’s Labor Day Beach Bash

5 reasons why you should spend your 2017 Labor Day on Tybee Island! Here are the upcoming events!

The Swingin’ Medallions! Who doesn’t love FREE live entertainment? This year the Swinging Medallions will perform on Sunday September 3rd from 7-10:30pm. We recommend you grab your favorite weekend beverage and head to the pier to check out this infamous band. They are known for their covers of classic beach music from the Beach Boys and many more!

Tybee Island Fireworks! Tybee Island will have a Firework display unlike any place in the world on Sunday! This Firework display will take place over the ocean with the summer stars in the background. We promise you will never forget this holiday spectacle!

BACON FEST! September 1-4th is Savannah’s Bacon Fest on River Street. Know any Bacon lovers? Take the short 15-minute trip to Savannah for all that is Bacon!

Beach Weather! The Sand in between your toes! Warm weather and warm water equal the perfect beach day!

BYE BYE SUMMER! Unfortunately, for most people, Labor Day weekend is the last big blow out of the summer. (Disclaimer: Not for us native Tybee folks!) Celebrate this weekend with family and friends in a luxury Oceanfront Cottage Vacation Rental. BOOK EARLY because we will book solid for that weekend!

Something for Everyone on Tybee Island

Don’t miss these upcoming events on Tybee Island!

Tybee may be small, but summertime on the island is packed full of fun activities for all ages. Whether you’re coming to Tybee Island for a family vacation, a romantic getaway, or you’re a low country local looking for a beach “stay-cation”, there is something for everyone here on the island.

Movies on the Island

Many beach vacationers are seeking family friendly events. Too sunburnt to beach bum? Although the closest movie theatre is in Savannah, if you’re interested in seeing a flick on the island, there are several options! Check out the showing of “Sing” at Memorial Park on June 17th right after sunset. This marks the first of many “Movies in the Park” this summer!

Bummed out about a rainy day? Stay dry indoors at Tybee Post Theater and check out their Summer Family Movie Series, featuring movies like “Moana” and “The Jungle Book”. They are also featuring “Gray’s Reef Tuesdays” which includes weekly showings of fascinating films about marine life and the Georgia coast.

Sunset Evenings

No children to entertain? Tybee also offers things to do for couples craving a date night. The Tybee Island Lighthouse is offering sunset tours during the month of June.  These tours are small and cozy. There is no better way to end a beach day than to witness the sprawling Tybee sunset with 360 degree views from the lighthouse.  After the sunset, end your romantic evening with local music at the Tybee Post Theater; “Tybee City Limits” is a recurring event that features local musicians.
