We’re sure you have heard of the slow Southern pace of life that makes island life so special, but we hope you realize that slow doesn’t mean boring. From tastings to historic tours to Sundays with music in the park the Saint Simons Island events schedule will keep you hopping! If you happen to be visiting during the summer months, make sure you stay over Independence Day…our St. Simons Old Fashioned 4th of July celebration will bring you back to the simpler celebrations of your youth… one spent eating ice cream, apple pie and oohing and awing over the spectacular fireworks display! Take a painting technique class on Mondays at Glynn Visual Arts Center or pottery classes on Thursday…or both…you’re on vacation and you get to spend the time however you want to spend it! But this isn’t all! Read on for more detailed information about the best events in St. Simons Island!
Having Fun While Keeping Busy
So whether you want to visit the Pier Village Holiday Market during Christmas or attend the St. Simons Island Storytelling Festival in February, you will find events in St. Simons Island to interest and entice people of all ages. Our island is more than sun and sand and oceans and marshes (although that we have all that too, of course!) it’s a lifestyle of slow southern days, old fashioned festivals, delicious food…and families. You really should come check it out for yourself!
