tybee island songwriters festival

Tybee Island Songwriters Festival

Tybee Island Songwriters Festival will be April 7th – 9th, so be on the lookout as tickets will go on sale soon. This second annual event will have multiple venues at Pier 16, The Rock House and Fannies on the Beach. Songwriter rounds make for a great show as audiences truly get “up close and personal” with the songwriters! The classic format of a round has three to four songwriters on stage. One performs a song, followed by the next writer, and the next, and so on. Each songwriter can join in with the others, add harmonies, contribute a guitar riff, or just listen. Writers talk about how and why they wrote the songs, and there are always lively stories and interaction between the writers and 20+ rounds will be performed over the three days. Just take a look at some of the multi-talented songwriters coming to perform for you.

Tybee Island Irish Heritage Parade

Tybee Island Heritage Parade

Tybee Island Heritage Parade is the first parade of St. Patrick’s season on Saturday, March 12 from 3 to 5 p.m. Now in its 19th year, the annual celebration parade is two hours of awesome jam-packed with music, marchers and so much more. The family-friendly float fest starts at Tybee City Hall and travels down Butler Avenue to Tybrisa Street. Wear your brightest green garb and get ready to party at the parade!

Of course, along with the “wearin’ o the green” you’ll want to reserve one of these Mermaid Cottages. You’ll be as lucky as the Irish to stay in one for Tybee Island Heritage Parade and for all of your celebrations and vacations.
