October 5-9, 2016

This 5 day festival offers the best the South has to offer, from BBQ & Georgia Craft beer to local seafood & phenomenally paired wines, from Pitmasters & Professional Golfers to local restaurants & spirits! St. Simons will transform into a non-stop celebration as it hosts Celebrity Guest Chefs, Bloggers, Authors, locals and tourists alike. Check out the events to see where to find your favorite chefs, bands, artists, farmers and spirits! Voted “Best Public Fair or Festival” by the Allie Awards, this is the only local festival that highlights the bounty of the Golden Isles while raising money and awareness for Hospice of the Golden Isles, the only non-profit hospice serving our five county area.

    When & Where

    New to the Festival? For the past 4 years St. Simons Island turns into a full fledge party the first week of October! The heart of the festival is the Saturday Under the Oaks, located in Gascoigne Bluff Park, a historic park near Epworth Methodist Center. Additional festival events, from dinners to competitions and live auctions, happen all over St. Simons and one on Sea Island. Parking for the various events will be either in a public parking lot or clearly marked by signs.

    St. Simons and the surrounding area offer an array of great hotels and resorts to fit your budget. Each are close to the events, some even offering shuttle service. Please see our lodging page for more information.
