Live Like a Local: 2nd Annual Tybee Seafood Festival!

We are SO excited! The 2nd Annual “37th” Tybee Seafood Festival starts today! Founded in April of 2010 and named in honor of the fictitious carnival in the movie, The Last Song, it is Tybee’s annual seafood festival, complete with a carnival! The Seafood Review -the Main Event- will be held at the Pier Saturday, May 7th, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and admission is free, so make plans to be there! The festival fun is sponsored by Chatham County and the City of Tybee Island and features delicious local favorites prepared by the island’s finest restaurants and caterers. There will also be wonderful live performances by local musicians, so don’t miss a minute!

This family friendly event runs May 4th through May 8th with a Mega Midway Carnival, sponsored by the wonderful Tybee Arts Association. It is only $1 admission per person per day, so its affordable! You can also purchase $20 wristbands each day for unlimited rides! While you’re downtown, don’t forget to enjoy the nearby Tybee Island Marine Science Center, take time to relax on the beach, and browse Tybee’s unique island shops and galleries. Make a weekend out of it all!

For more information about the festival, restaurants involved in the Seafood Review, or the carnival, please check out the Tybee Seafood Fest website and join the fun on the official Facebook page, too. It is going to be a fun filled weekend…we hope you join us!
