Live Like a Local: Art and Wine Fun!

April has gotten off to a running start here on Tybee! There’s so much going on, your head will spin. The fun isn’t waiting for the weekend either! It starts tonight, in fact!

One of our favorite island artists, Rebecca Rice, is teaching a class tonight at the Tybee Arts Center. Art materials, snacks, and beverages will be provided, so all you need is a creative spirit! The class is $40 per person, with $5 being donated to the Historic Tybee Post Theater, and participants will create an original 9×12 inch painting to take home and enjoy. The Tybee Arts Center is at 7 Cedarwood Avenue. If you would like more information, please call 912-786-5920 or go to the Tybee Arts Association website!

The good times continue through the weekend with the 3rd Annual Tybee Wine Festival! The festival will be April 15th and 17th, 3 to 7 p.m., on the Tybee Lighthouse grounds. This year, there will be a Grand Tasting event as well as an Evening of Oysters and Wine at Marlin Monroe’s at Beachcolony! The festival will wrap up April 17th with the special Champagne at the Chapel, held at the newly opened Tybee Wedding Chapel!

Don’t miss a minute of the fabulous festivities…proceeds benefit the effort to restore the Historic Tybee Post Theater. What better reason is there to enjoy great wine with good friends? Tickets for these events are available right now, but they are limited, so get yours today! You can purchase your tickets and get more information one each event over on the Tybee Wine Festival website. We can’t wait, hope to see you there!
