The Festival Events will take place primarily at Memorial Park located at 402 Jones Avenue , Tybee Island, Georgia 31328 directly behind City Hall between Butler and Jones Ave. The park is within walking distance 2 blocks from the beach. The Beach area we will be at is the Center Street entrance across the street from the Library.
Screened Covered Pavilion
We will be at the Green Screened Covered Pavilion. The space is outdoors so be aware of whatever provisions you need to make to be comfortable. The Pavilion is covered and has fans, lights, and water. Restrooms are public, so please plan accordingly . For those that get hot easily, an additional neck or personal fan may be helpful for you. I find this one that can be ordered online to be affordable and extremely helpful : Personal Fans :
Because our event is outdoors, you may also want to bring Sun screen and mosquito repellent and comfortable shoes .
Our screened pavilion offers shade but on the beech, you may want to have a beach tent and or beach chairs for when we are out there. It’s not necessary but for the events, it may be helpful.
