Tybee Island upcoming events include:
  • Food Festivals – One of the best events is that which includes great food, such as the Bacon Fest in Savannah (only 20 minutes from Tybee Island) or the Oktoberfest that gives you a taste of Germany with a splash of Southern style.
  • Themed Festivals – The Tybee Island Pirate Festival runs in October, but if you plan to visit the island during this off-season, book early because cottages run out fast for this family favorite.
  • Artisan and Farmers’ Markets – The weekly farmers’ and artisan markets run throughout summer on Tybee Island and feature the freshest finds and local goods. Likewise, you have the wine festivals that pop up throughout the year, including the one hosted by the Tybee Post Theater in April.
  • Art Festivals – For the artist in the family, visit the annual art show from the Tybee Arts Association or the truly unique Sand Art Festival where everything is created from the sand on the beach.

To avoid having to drive in from downtown Savannah just to enjoy the island’s events, why not book yourself a cottage on the beach. Whether you want a condominium, property with a pool, or even a pet-friendly residence for your stay, our team can find it for you. Browse specific upcoming Tybee Island events and festivals below.
